Intellectualism is not Democratic

This is another version of something I am always saying: Cryptozoology is not a topic where any one opinion is as good as another, the commenter has got to actually know what they are talking about or the statement is worthless. Simply having an opinion is not good enough, simply quoting somebody else's opinion is not good enough either. Somebody that knows nothing about anatomy should not be advancing arguments which call for making judgments about anatomy, and so on down the line. People engaging in Cryptozoological debates should not be just throwing any old thing out there and hoping that it will stick. A lot of discussion in Cryptozoology consists of wild guesses and no background knowledge of the sciences which actually pertain to the question.
