I am going meta. Apologies to all.

I object to how posts like the above put an end to conversations, some
of which I find interesting. There is nothing wrong with objecting,
but there is something uncivil about bringing conversations to a
premature end. A thoroughly Rortyian observation, but there you have

I find Kant, Heidegger and Rorty all very thought-provoking. I don't
mind the insults. But if a sustained conversation is impossible
because of them, then the good of this list is unclear for me.
