my personal reason for responding under the L-rod thread rather than the doreen thread is as follows -- and it has nothing to do with fame or popularity! (i also posted at the same time, but got few responses because my post was rather vaccuos "What the hell is going on /here? was all i wrote.)
this is my personal interpretation.
l-rod's post want to know what was happening, he was obviously a confused and curious or outraged community-member. your post seemed too much like you were in the loop -- "what a wonderful experiment" -- as if you knew what was happening b/c it was all an experiement that somebody (though you didn't say who) devised to test something out with and now it's all resolved. not to be trusted.
the phenomenology of waves of fear and trust!
