Archaeology, Academic and Public Debate

I has encountered the inevitable anonymous chip-on-the-shoulder haters which such a research topic tends to attract. In a retweet  we see her complain:
t looks like 'public archaeology' researcher
If you disagree with my opinions, great, that's academia, let's have a discussion I love intelligent convos. But I'm not here to be insulted
of course it is difficult to have any kind of discussion about the opinions of an academic who blocks people who hold opinions which vary from their own. Experience in my own area of interest shows very clearly that the only discussion the academics in Britain who support current (failing) public policies on artefact hunting and collecting are willing to take part in, and note of, is that with like-minded yes-people. That is not the essence of real academic debate.
