Am I missing something? Mine was the only response which mentioned your
camping suggestion, at least according to the mailings that came to me via
occam-com. I also responded today to Neil's language discussions, and
never saw my note... Are these mailing lists as hit-and-miss as that?
And I certainly did not intend to imply I was offended. Being moneyless or
out of work is not a crime (otherwise I am a criminal) - and if Kepler had
had to camp out to correct scientific nonsense, I'd bring him a cartload
of firewood. We just need to be clear about what has happened to us; total
defeat is a real possibility.
