In my own experience, it is rarely those who care about authenticity
that are labeled "authent-o-crat" or other non-flattering phrases.
Those terms are more often applied to individuals who, in the name
of "authenticity", berate, belittle, discourage and generally give
rather good impressions of the north end of a southbound horse.

An interesting point which begs the question of why you feel moved
to continue in our company.

How odd. The impression I've received is that you are very much
so....by the definition of the term I gave above.
