in thread Why Change?

Note that the blog I pointed to for Adam was from 2008. So yes, your 2006 discussion is somewhat out of date. In the discussion at the link I gave he was told the proposed solution for his issue. He made it clear that he understands that that's the plan but he'll be a lot happier about it after he sees it happen. Which I take to mean that he's a little dubious that things will work out like the plan says. Frankly I'm in the same boat.

A poll is unnecessary. If you want to make comments about "most", I won't dispute it one way or another. I don't have an opinion on that. It is only when you try to project the impression of virtually complete unanimity that I'll react.

As for the apology, let's not bother taking this further. Past bad experiences have convinced me that if conversation in public goes poorly, then conversation in private will be even worse. If you don't think that you wish to apologize for saying "you keep ignoring this point" when I had, in fact, addressed it repeatedly then that is your choice.

About that other thread. You seem to believe that we were discussing a matter of opinion rather than a matter of fact. As long as you keep that basic misconception, you're unlikely to question your assumptions about the world deeply enough to reconsider your beliefs. (I do not say that lightly. I try to be extremely careful to keep clear on the distinction between fact and belief.)

As far as I'm concerned, this discussion is at an end. Unless you say something startlingly new, I won't reply to any replies.
