No insinuations need to be made, I can merely ask for quantitative
proof by asking people to answer the following questions:

a) how many patents have list members applied for and/or received in
the last decade?
b) how many published papers/books?
b1) nobel or other academic prizes?
c) how many members have grown their personal net worth from their own
entrepreneurship by more than a million dollars?
d) how many political offices have they run or campaigned for, or
managed campaigns for?
e) how many non-profits started by list members have raised over
$100,000 in one year?
f) how many bills have been passed or prevented by the actions of list
g) how many demonstrations have list members conceived, organized, and
