Were I to have mentioned a well-publicised recent posting, and similar recent postings of the same general content, which led me to ask about fundamentals... perhaps I would be viewed as being personally critical of the authors, which would have missed the real message...
Were you to say what you actually want, we could actually have a constructive discussion.
We've had both very fundamental discussions on complexity (which can be found with Super Search and external search engines, and to some of which I already linked), and we had many discussions about the complexity of particular algorithms and of particular operations in perl.
In my humble opinion both are equally important, but the latter subject is fuller of technical details, and thus for the casual observer less interesting.
Was the point you're trying to make that the former (ie more fundamental discussions) should get more weight?
(I also don't get the point of covering criticism with the friendly face of a Koan - to me it's like saying "I don't mean to insult you, but ..." and then adding an insult. But that might be just personal preference, or cultural difference.)
