My only point in my previous discussion of your verbosity is that I
found that I could not go through all the stuff, therefore, I couldn't
comment intelligently on much because it may have already been covered
by someone else, or you, yourself. That is what kept me quiet. Not
'your fault'. I simply didn't have the time. Regarding the thread of
the "Aesthetics of Science" and other related discussions, you're
right, it does interest me, and I CAN comment on it without sounding
out of order because I, a) have followed it from the beginning and b)
have read a lot of books about the topics.

So... I'm not calling for your banning or censorship or anything like
that. Just try to reign it in a bit on the 20 post days.
