Gotta love Prof. Stanley Wells's righteous indignation!
"I hope I can still be rational and (up to a point) courteous about the subject, but the time for tolerance is over. There is no room for reasonable doubt"
Ha! There is lots of room for reasonable doubt. I'm a Stratfordian, too, and he raises lots of valid points, but pretending that there is no room for doubt is a bit ridiculous.

Prof. Wells is too set in his ways and is incapable of flexibility and openness to new possibilities...Rylance wins this debate hands down.
