Hugh,

In this thread lies a simple example. If you gave me a link to the 
thread in question I am just a click away from truly comprehending your 
point. This forum is about Linked Data, right ? :-)

Please (seriously now) give me a link that exemplifies your point. 
Context is inherently subjective, public forums accentuate this reality.

FWIW -- I prefer to show rather than tell, I am also an instinctive 
dog-fooder so I link. The power of hyperlinks (links) continue to exceed 
my personal imagination. The productively gains that I enjoy courtesy of 
links is something I still can't quite quantify. That's why I haven't 
made a movie, post, or presentation (yet) with regards to the utter 
power of links.

I await your link, I do want to be much clearer about your point.
