Agreed on all points.
People, I understand that many of you are not native English speakers, but please make an effort when commenting... The deleted thread had some pretty bad English in it, not because of it being such a difficult language, but because a lot of people just seem to want to get their point across in a hurry without ever considering or re-reading what they write. Nothing weakens an argument more effectively than using the wrong words (and style) to bring it across.
(Obvious disclaimer: My English is not perfect either. Neither are all of my arguments. I'm not targeting anyone in particular. But you get the idea. :)
