Bruno, I will post on the subject - but not yet. I do not want to get sidetracked from improving my paper.

I will admit that diplomacy is not always my strong suit when dealing with controversial subjects.

My characterization of it is sincere, not affectionate, though mainly what made me say that is that you call it a proof. It's an argument, not a proof, and the argument fails to be convincing. Now many people make arguments that I don't buy and I don't necessarily call those arguments crackpot, but I will if they make too-strong claims.
