No, I think that would just be confusing to people; I see no purpose in
it. I think I've said everything here that relates to the discussion in
a useful way; the bulk of our conversation was us saying different
things and me finally coming to the point that we're talking about
different things. I think it would be a disservice to the list to make
them go around in circles trying to follow that conversation and then
not get anywhere particularly useful at the end.

This just shows how we're talking about very different things. In this
