Being respectful isn’t just a nice thing to do. Skeptics are more likely to succeed if they defend science and reason in a consistently respectful manner.
The 2018 Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI) CSICon conference is in the books. After checking in at Las Vegas’s McCarran International Airport and consuming a mediocre breakfast burrito, I found myself next to Burger King with enough solitude and caffeine-based stimulation to process everything I learned. I have been to three consecutive CSICons; this one placed a stronger emphasis on treating others with respect.
