Why's that, especially since it's a viable alternative to the meme-ory and beme positions? You must be strongly partisan to the memetic perspective if you think a non-partisan should just shut up. Remember I added "dunno" as my stance, but unlike others I can't say the other two alternatives carry any more weight behind them. I thought "pink unicorn" would add some skepticism to the mix. I see that people are too in love with their "pet theory" to think otherwise, hence "Old Yeller".
