This is a weak appeal to authority.
One could counter by saying that ASCE has 140,000 members who dont support gage. But that would be just another appeal to authority.
Lets stick to the issues. The organization does not present information in context, and as I illustrate in this post, has some serious work to do in verifying their claims. If they are able to do this they will take the truth movement mainstream. If they cannot, people should steer clear.
