IOW you are saying you too do not understand what these people area saying?

Firstly, because you do not understand it does not necessarily mean that it
is 'wrong'.
Secondly, the manner of presentation and the wave emphasis etc shows a
persepective that is often used in communcations and that is of interest in
a memetics context, if it is a con then the structure of it should be
analysed rather than the whole thing written off.

Surely any site (and there are others on the ratbag list) that touches the
borderline between what is/is not warrents careful analysis from a memetics
perspective to help discover all aspects of communication.

What exactly is your perspective on memetics Wade?
