No, I'm not doing Tshuveh and becoming a Yeshivisher, I want to bring up a point.
According to Moreinu HaBaal Shem Tov, the Ma'amar "כל הנגעים אדם רואה חוץ מנגעי עצמו" That any shortcomings that a person sees on his friend, איז דאס מנגעי עצמו, it's a Negah that he has, and he sees it in his friend in order for him to rectify the situation.
If so, and using that logic, do we say that Chassidim suffer from a Gayveh problem, hence the accusations against non-Chassidim?
Do Misnagdim suffer from questions in Emunah that they question anybody and everybody who makes a statement about a Tzaddik, and do they have hidden affinities for X-tianity that they accusee others of adhering to its principles?
Do Kanoyim have issues with women and Shmiras Eynayim that they "see" everything that could be problematic and always focus on it, even before Kol Nidre?
