I find it antithetical to the spirit of learning that many questions on this forum are approached by the regular users with an air of intellectual arrogance.
I wanted to leave my comment in response to the unwarranted animosity towards an admitted layperson for their question on why relative velocity causes time dilation, but was halted by yet another example of exclusion in the form of not having the required "reputation points". So I must gain some reputation before I'm allowed to share ideas? Interesting approach.
If someone, learned or otherwise, has come to a forum of this nature asking questions, they obviously have some desire to understand, and your regular users are doing humanity a disservice by scoffing at requests to simplify things.
Is a person not allowed to be curious without needing to take a university physics course just to receive respect?
I highly expect this comment to be removed, but maybe some admin will actually hear what I'm saying and not censor criticism.
