You've talked to 2 lists about this where the lists are made up of people
with a huge range of different views, and both times you've just said 'you
all think exactly the same'.
But let me try and distill some of it. I do think that sometimes these
discussions do help sort out and formulate ideas.

Yeh, same idea... let the bait go low across the water for the fun of
seeing what jumps for it... like going into a christian mailing list and
saying 'dont you realise jesus is really the devil' just for the sake of
seeing what answers you get...
final point the language and rhetoric has alot to do with where
something ends up - but Grahan would just say that is my post modern
speak with a bit of Negri - his pet hates.....
:-) Personally, I reckon Negri is a fascist (not trolling, I'll defend
that argument, but not on this list, it's too off topic).
