I didn't realize any straw-persons shouting epithets were around,  
unless Pat H is a straw-person.    (04)

You are helping me to make my point  arguing that some class of  
users will find the services delivered to them by ontology-driven  
applications developed according to the Semantic Web vision is close  
to being tautological, assuming that the SW is a way to get computers  
to do things, i.e. that it works at all as a determiner of software  
behavior.  And it certainly is not an argument that some method A of  
ontology development is better than some other method B.    (05)
