This is the very issue I have with a lot of SE dogmas and those that subscribe to one particular set, not just the one described here. Objective truth is an afterthought in most cases.

Most these dogmas are anecdotal at best with very little to no empirical backing within surrounding context, but people will stand by certain approaches as if they were well tested theories like general relativity, newtonian mechanics, or QED.
