"Idealist" is often prefixed by "hopeless"! We'd have to know what most
people think to know whether we were extreme. Dare I say that to comment
extensively about anything non-mainstream could be labelled "extreme".
Anyway, it's the usual accusation - it's like being called a lefty lesbian
man-hating hippy. Easy peasy boxy woxy.
