"Ad-hominem" doesn't mean "substanceless." You might want to review the technical definition.

You keep saying there are no arguments, but there have been plenty of substantial points made by the c.d.t. voices. It is easy to be distracted by insults when they start flying, and focus on them exclusively, but the presence of insults doesn't mean the absence of valid argument.
