Ah, but you and I are J. Random Online Philosopher: Dr. Stangroom is
the academic mainstream. My hit was a matter of sloppy wording, but
yours is probably a case of ideas that just haven't sunk in to the
mainstream enough yet for them to be taken seriously. So score one
for JROP.

It would not surprize me, though, if Dr. Stangroom saw any flaws in
his test as a success for him personallyin bringing up those details
that even good philosophers can miss.
