I really, really don't want to get into another one of these, but let's be
clear - no matter what you say, no matter how long you say it for, and no
matter who agrees with you, Anthony is right and you are not.
Since Anthony made an assertion about those who tolerate disagreement and
Kent made an assertion about the (somewhat orthogonal) issue of tolerating
signal to noise, why do you think this is an either-or question? They're
both right, in the abstact. Kent's right that disagreement's aren't what's
at issue here (IETF lists have _always_ been great sources of disagreements).
The principle at hand is what we do in the face of degraded SNR.
Some people believe degraded SNR risks culling the crowd in the wrong way.
Researchers and engineers with other things to do may leave. Technologists
with a penchant for the meta-discussion may stay.
