The reason they don't is because they recognise the essential futility of the 
voicing of an opinion. Any points they make will receive a reply from you 
restating your arguments and asking loads more questions. Getting dragged into 
a thread almost always results in you having the last word.

The problem I had during our WalterCon discussion was the rarity of occasions 
where you agreed with anything I said, and the complete lack of any change in 
your position despite the large number of arguments thrown around. On the other 
hand, my position changed significantly (WC not feasible until corporate 
interest -> interested current community members could be attracted by a more 
technical program). In Koki world that's probably because you were right all 
along, but I'm sure not everyone sees it like that.

I've been away from email for a day and missed dozens of emails, all of them 
pretty long. I'm not completely caught up yet. I, and most others I suspect, 
just don't have that amount of time to throw words into a black hole.

That's why my next Haiku act will be producing a "Why Haiku" video presentation 
and asking for feedback - doing rather than talking, as people regularly
