just wondering whether you'd like to point any out specific  
instances, just  so those paranoiacs out there who write on the topic  
from time to time aren't left wondering whether our din is brainful

I actually think there is quite a bit of reasonably intelligent  
discussion, and interest, from some pretty smart experienced people,  
who've seen some hype in their time
