I was agreeing with John, and "even" (as in "also") adding the
agreement about cheesiness.  Many people seem to defend their posts
from any kind of opposition.  I have felt like every suggestion I've
made to this thread has been met with a "no, that's dumb" comment -
but I should know better than to look for appreciation for
contributing.  That's not sour grapes, I acknowledge that this medium
is mostly about arguments over agreements.  I think sometimes if
you're succinct enough for people to read your posts, you risk being
too terse; if too wordy, your posts are ignored.  If you say something
that has no opposition, there is rarely a reply in agreement with a
well constructed statement.  So it leaves opposition and bickering as
common modes.

... and sometimes the use of the most innocuous connective word has
unintended consequential meaning.  Thanks for pointing it out so I
could (attempt to) explain.
