|I appreciate Lindsay's post, and the comments here from Barbara and Cam. What I did not point out in the article, needs to be pointed out here. This discussion has actually been raging for years on this very site; to simply point to the most recent dialogue as the "turning point" is not to acknowledge that there is a long history. See, for example, debates from 2002 and 2003, here, here, here, here, and here. Not to mention various threads initiated by others.|
So, yes, pro or con, supporter or opponent, we've beaten this poor pony to death... from where I sit, it's time to move on. And as a philosopher once put it: And I mean it.
