Uh, hang on a second here... One -isn't- supposed to lobby for ones
ideas, just toss them out to the crowd, and hope that people side with
you? Other folks may not care enough about the topic to sit down and do
some hard thinking, or research other opinions, to see what other points
of view their might be. Those of us who have done this research are
trying to at least make the research easier for others to do, and
hopefully sway them to our point of view. Others who hold the same
point of view are probably going to do the same thing. If you don't
care, delete the messages, but don't stop us from trying to educate the
rest of the JSF.
