	Well, Ian, your whole response to Dan, and often to others, reminds
me of the Monty Python argument sketch. And none of Dan's posts were
anything like 67 KB. I rather hope your five minutes are now up and we can
move to proper discussion rather than unconvincing point by point

	I was thinking about not sending this post, as there seems there is
little hope of communication with you, Dan. You "saturation of the airwaves"

	Somehow every flame war on the basis of the TDI always end in this
way. What is the issue, what is at stake: a very fragmentarily preserved
inscription from the upper Huleh Valley, the biblical king David, people's
beliefs? hardly serious scholarship.

	What about moving to something else. So far not a single new
argument has been forwarded but mailboxes have been filled up with redundant
