Mike, I no longer believe you should resist that temptation.

My name is Bob Hunt, which is given in a minimal AOL profile.  I prefer
the screen name as it appears to irritate some people.  Will be happy to
mail you the curves, and thanks for your offer to review results.

The statement said utterly nothing about the desires of the participants
regarding developing a consensus.  It only said that a consensus would be
hard to reach.  I think perhaps that a satisfaction with this condition on
the part of some is a more likely case to be encountered than is your
siren analogy.  I haven't seen any indication that anyone here can
convince anyone else of anything, let alone lead them somewhere.
