You make a good point about how often critics try to shoot down cryonics 
without bothering to examine the facts.

Whether or not an opinion even *can* be honestly shot down depends on 
how well it conforms with the facts. Cryonics *does*, at least in the 
sense that cryonics proponents limit themselves to what appears 
plausible given those facts. But Creighton's conspiracy propaganda 
*doesn't*. Because it doesn't, and because his "opinion" threatens the 
very future we cryonicists are hoping for, it darn well *should* be shot
