How stupid of me... I have been talking out loud to a box of rocks.

I recall this dynamic from past "dialogues" with MaR. One can make a case using facts, metaphor, and links, only to find that none of it has been understood - perhaps not even read.

Pointed questions asked and ignored.

It's a world where ignorant opinion, often based on fantasy, is unassailable.

Oh well, I had fun trying. rolleyes
