It has /no/ chance of working.

It is a very old, very tired, very failed, and long-dismissed approach.

The proposal reflected no sense of the topic's history and demonstrated
no sense of the challenges.

Yet the proposal asserted simplistic 'certitude' not curiosity-driven

Given how wasteful posting such a proposal is, my response was arguably
more polite than warranted, not less.  And while the poster's background
shouldn't matter, in this case it would have justified even less
