Although I work at a University, I hate to cite myself, but perhaps in 
this case it's legitimate:


I tried to give an answer to this question and a few others that have 
been hotly debated on this list. I got no response at all to this (too?)

idiocies in it (my mailing, I mean). Even so, some casual comments would 
be really appreciated.
