    Well, I suppose we can all quibble, we're good at quibbling, until an
    actual study shows _any_ evidence of subliminal influence, but, as
    you've seen, none has, and there have been several.

    The single fact that the _only_ _supporting_ reference is a _fraud_....
    Well. What is there to quibble about?

    Unless you have some agenda to promote some charlatanry, there is
    nothing to quibble about.
