Because I posted it right after I found it (impulse) and rejected it after I thought about it for a while. I also sent it to a friend via email, and the resulting back and forth allowed me to see the flaws in the author's reasoning. A similar discussion could have happened here, but it didn't.
I would like to see more rather than fewer conversations going on here. But that's me. And I'm not afraid of controversy (what the hell is a forum for if not for engaging in debate, and discussion, and for working through disagreemens). Nor am I afraid to change my mind, or admit to being wrong from time time. So what harm was there in posting it?
The way I look at it, when I'm the only one posting, nobody else has any legitimate gripe about what I post, because anything beats nothing every time. Unless, that it, it's Mr. Crowe or his appointees, because it's his house and his rules.
So my post was certainly more interesting than what you have posted over the last month, which is nothing (not to pick on you -- the same thing goes for anybody who lurks and avoids taking the risk inherent in posting stuff).
