Derek Gather:

How will you know an i-meme when you see one?

James McComb:

I am not a behaviorist. I am happy to create theoretical entities, provided
they have explanatory power and are indirectly testable. And I don't see why
you seem to think methodological behaviorism is any more appropriate in
memetics than it is in other fields of psychology. (But let's not start THAT
debate again.)
