It seems to me that the main participants in this discussion are
getting caught up in the either-or fallacy (AKA the excluded
middle), and arguing extreme positions because of the rhetorical
corners they've backed into. How can either structure or
substance have any meaning except in terms of the other? Dragging
in Microsoft and the New Economy can't hide the fact that the
discussion is more about semantics than any measurable reality.

And if they say nothing, they will not be on file,
And if they see nothing, no one shall see them,
No one will take down their name."
