Yes, the JREF skeptics are rude and sarcastic, but what do you expect when people keep approaching with fantastic tales of their deeds, despite reality showing the opposite?
That supernaturalbeing just keeps exclaiming how fantastic he is, though never owes up to his promises. Never addresses people's points, just keeps rampling on about his super powers. Doesn't anyone else get annoyed by it? Do you really have to be skeptical to be annoyed by such people?
