I could believe there are some people on the list
who se it that way but that's certainly not my take.
The list seems currently to serve the function of entertain-
ment, more than anything. Sometimes that entertainment includes
an idea or two, but not very often.

I understand now
The list exists so that a few superior minds which write books and
contribute to journals can laugh at the efforts of lesser people. The elite
always find a way to generate a peonage.
It is in fact a big joke played upon the naive non-academic.
My apologies for taking up your time.
