Not a single response. Hmm. OK, maybe I *have* been under a rock and
everyone's just too polite to point that out. Yeah, right. :-)

Or maybe nobody here cares about archaeology. We're more future oriented
than past oriented, right? Well, yeah, but we're smart enough to realize
that the past has valuable lessons.

Maybe everyone's too busy working riddles. But Nan Madol is real world
riddle whose solution would benefit mankind, not just boost the egos of
those who can solve it.

I'm stumped. I can't figure out why nobody else seems to care...
