Folks,    (01)

Allow me to suggest that we refrain from responding to such obviously 
nonsensical and vacuous expressions of institutionalized ignorance as 
the recent postings on this thread. My response, after some cursory 
checking to verify that the claims are indeed as nonsensical as they 
sound (in this case, for example, the fact that the world of Thomas, 
Ballard and KFI is entirely self-referring and self-contained, with 
no connection to any scholarly or published work for the last 20 
years; and that if its claims were even partly correct, it would by 
now have put Oracle out of business) is to simply create an email 
filter to auto-trash such stuff. Arguing with these people is like 
arguing with creationists about evolution.    (02)

Let me propose that we adopt the term "ontospam" for this kind of 
input, in order that we can all save one anothers' time by using it 
to categorize such inputs quickly and precisely. It is pretty easy to 
recognize, see for example
