Of course it's OK to be on the side of ARI here, although most of us pick sides in context. I find ARI people a very mixed bag, but I do find myself in agreement, with at least some of ARI people, most of the time. TOC people, on the other hand, seldom say anything with enough precision for me to know what they are saying, much less agree or disagree.
However, if you picked a pseudonym because you don't want to be judged on your past, then you might consider simply telling us how your views - or your habits - have changed. Primacy of reality means that you change your mind with the evidence - and among real Objectivists that's a good thing.
