Thanks for the link. PMS Hacker makes much of his initials and this seems to be

perhaps a wry nod to) broader cultural norms and meanings:-


On a less serious note: the article surely scotches any idea that the 
saying-showing distinction is anything other than absolutely fundamental to the 
Tractatus? [At its outset, ten groups are specified of "numerous truths that 
seemingly cannot be stated, but which arenevertheless apparently asserted in 
the course of the Tractatus."]
