No, my actions can affect the future, at least as far as I can tell; my
actions cannot affect the past, so it makes no sense to ask me for
recommendations. Curt85 and Curt90 would have been reasonable
people to ask for decisions on Curt90 vs. Curt00, because they could
do something. Curt00 has nothing to do with such as decision.
