Why the hell should I care? But is it valid? Are there any "Extreme

I already instanced Niven. Fine with me, bubba.

I don't know, let's see some.

>or by honest discussion?

I'd have thought that's what's been coming from plenty of people on 
this thread. The occasional sharp, amusing snap at the heels, whether 
from Lee rather to the right or BillK somewhat to the left, adds 
flavor to the exchanges.
