the price of liberty is eternal vigilance

And that includes vigilance against efforts, whether conscious or unconscious, to corrupt or dilute the libertarian message. I think it would be helpful if we focused on criticizing a person's actions, rather than criticizing the person. I think this is what Ron Paul prefers to do. So, when Rand does something unlibertarian, rather than saying "Rand sucks," we should say "this thing that Rand did sucks." However, this is a nutsack that swings both ways. So when someone says "this thing that Rand did sucks," others shouldn't interpret it as an attack on Rand the person.
