My work on Buddhism: how is it perceived by (non-scholarly) white Buddhists?

This is a link from 2016 I stumbled upon (when googling my own name to find the link to an article that I know I uploaded somewhere).

You see the religious mentality at work here: one contributor to this website is saying that my articles (and videos) about Buddhism are "honest scholarship" and raise important questions for Buddhists to consider.  And the other members of the forum reach for whatever excuse they can find to dismiss the articles without reading them (one explicitly says that he made his decision on the basis of the titles of the articles being too cynical).  ;-)
