That's an old thread, but I believe the original context selected MT 
as someone posthumans might go to some trouble to retrieve *due to 
her especial humanitarian merit*... which was my objection. It was 
like finding oneself in the Soviet Union half a century ago and 
hearing everyone babbling about the supreme virtue of Stalin. Well, 
perhaps not *quite* like that. :)
