Whoa, Peter, take a pill!  It should be clear from the way Charles' 
comments were worded that he was using satire, not stating an 
opinion.  He is absolutely right that the discussion between you and 
Ian has degenerated into "is too/is not" and "I know more than you 
do/no, I know more than you do".  I for one appreciated the way he 
used satirical humor to get his point across, and I think you need to 
read what he wrote a little more closely.

In any case, I wholeheartedly agree that the thread in question has 
outlived its usefulness.

This time, like all times, is a very good one if we but know what to do 
with it.
