I'm sorry. I didn't mean to be picking on you so and it sounds like when I tried to be a little friendlier in my later comment I didn't succeed very well.

I do think that it is important to register when a theory fails as well as when it succeeds, but I wish I had said that in a way that was less snarky.

I don't think I'm doing a very good job of being friendly in this post either so I guess I'll leave it at that.

Sorry-- I should have gotten back to you sooner.

What happened with your comment above was that it seemed like an attempt to take charge of my emotions, and that's an extreme hot-button issue for me.

Also, my original comment was pushing things a little in the wrong direction-- putting too much emphasis on it being my theory.

So, some years later, and I'm surprised I was upset. I consider this to be progress.
