i could, but i hope i can restrain myself as it would be pointless. there's not much, since you ask me, that can be usefully said on this subject and this medium doesn't enable a meeting of minds in other ways much, such as boxing matches or drinks together. can't comment about academic discussion since i'm not an academic. i'll try to stop my outbursts and i hope the cross-posters can stop their self-publicity too. i think the oo group is the proper place for most of this silliness.

there are so many more challenging topics to explore that have nothing to do with OO. just my two cents.
