I can see why it is your favorite post. It's also extremely relevant to the position I expressed in my post, thank you. But I'm not sure that I can't hold my position above while being an objectively-subjective bayesian; I'll retract my post if I find that I can't.

My impression was not that you would be persuaded to retract but that you'd feel vindicated. The positions are approximately the same (with slightly different labels attached). I don't think I disagree with you at all.
