I am noticing that my latest reply to Dave Armstrong does not appear to have made it into Google Reader (length?).
In any case, it appears the debate with Dave is over for now. He has given me a very nice complement following my most recent post:
“I think you have argued your case well. I commend you, and you have earned my respect, without question (including very much so, your cordiality). This is not saying that I can’t possibly answer you. I am saying it would take too much effort to do so, and I choose not to do it at the moment, as a time-management issue. Take it as a compliment. If it takes a ton of work to answer someone, it is because they have argued well.”
