It's probably the case that people who will be convinced by your
arguments, will have accepted the force of your arguments by now.
For people who don't accept your arguments, they are not likely to

understand something may change their mind once they understand.
May I gently suggest that you stop and think before deciding
whether you need to respond to each message on this thread, and
whether you have something new and cogent to add, as opposed to
something which you've said already, in some cases multiple times?

messages that you don't want to see? I doubt that bandwidth is a
problem at MIT. It has always worked for me, and I'm constrained by
much more limited bandwidth.
