I was just offering my own evaluation, with future detailed
exposition to be assigned a reasonable priority on my 'to-do'
list. Much of the relevant testimony remains 'not for
publication', since it seems to me those whose names have been
used by Grant Cameron appear to think it's a useless and
non-worthwhile exercise to try and change any minds, and my
arguments that it could be worthwhile were not persuasive. Since
faceless folks on the 'UpDates' mailing List do not dictate my own
prioritization, I can't even predict when I'll be able to make
an effort to successfully persuade the testifiers to do so in

Grant, that leaves you in control of the floor.

Marcia Smith is the only one authorized to publish her views on
this question, and if she thinks the issue is too unimportant -
and too argumentative - to enter, I respect her judgment based
on 25 years of productive professional cooperation between us.

You seem to seriously misperceive your status vis-a-vis my own
schedule of activities, interests, and priorities. What can you
do to motivate me to want to do any such research along these
