Preventative remark: I asked Evan not to link the post in the OP because I was worried it would distract the comments here into debates about the object-level merits of the discussion I was reacting to. I don't think that's a productive direction to go in on an Internet forum (not in general, just unproductive here, specifically because the Internet is a terrible medium for conveying nuance/defusing tension), so I'd suggest that people stay away from that topic here.

(Not that this conversation seemed to be going in that direction; just making this remark out of an abundance of caution.)

Gotcha. If thats the case it'd have relaxed my mind if that point was addressed briefly rather than left to be assumed.
