The author deals with the ethics of scholarly debate and he refutes the manner of the argumentation applied by Lubomir Durovic in oral and written performance. In the discussion concerned with adaptation of foreign names, as e.g. in his article published in Slovenská rec (2005, vol. 5), arguments are displaced by half-truths and offensive statements exceeding the norms of any usual discussion. In this way, the necessary cooperative ambience is being disturbed.
