I think the user shouldn't leave just like that.
If the user's input is valuable in the sense that it is valid and solid objection to some other (popular) theory, it probably will be missed by those who cannot make up their own theories other than the existing ones.
Of course, users who share their own non-mainstream ideas must back them up by good arguments, and they should never make a point by patronizing others or questioning the most basic facts; and they should remain calm and -- what is most important -- present their facts in a plausible and understandable manner.
If I missed the point of this poll, feel free to ignore my writing ;-)
