This thread has gotten so dense that I can no longer
discern what the
topic is, much less who's on which side. If anyone sees fit to
continue it, I suggest they start by enumerating those two things.
Not sure what you mean by 'dense'. My "side" of the thread is just that
I get agitated at illogical/fallacious arguments like "let's not use
slashes for italics -- they look like regular expressions." That's all.
