"real misunderstandings" don't go away. in diplomatic circles the way treaties are achieved is by changing the subject to one that the misunderstanding parties don't consider crucial. all that does is leave it for the next generation but i'm not interested in peace with the oo progagandists, i just want them to keep their mischief elsewhere, as i think they would prefer since there's little money here. the only value in language, such as English is in prompting thought. agreement is not inevitable in any human discourse and i wish more people would stop dreaming it is. the only misunderstandings i want to discuss here are my own as far as db is concerned, not various opinions about a completely different field.
