Thank you for your kind suggestion. Unfortunately, what you propose would be impossible for at least two reasons. First, you can't ignore something without first attending to it and keeping it at the back of your mind. Second, the obsessive need, that comes with being a tech writer, to redact noetic flotsam and jetsam would also make what you suggest impossible. Trust me; if I could ignore what you and others have written on this matter, I would.

Or, Leonard, you could just ignore the entire discussion if you don't feel entertained, educated, or validated.
