Some history

It is abundantly clear that the vast majority of our community has historically rejected any form of EC.  Occasionally the subject was explored in detail with some surprising outcomes.  All this of course against 150+ years of history during which we have moved from horse and cart to the mechanical, digital and information revolutions.  Our reality today would be incomprehensible to our pioneers (some of whom famously rejected that man would ever fly and later others rejected the very idea of man landing on the moon).
