Yes, I'm trying to shift the collective conversation around the LOD Cloud to
recognize and include the idea, which really ought to be fairly
uncontroversial, that quantity and quality are intertwined. Verbosely
reified CSV cells, as William noted, are a particularly obvious example:
they increase the number of triples out of proportion to their usefulness.

If you don't want to participate in this part of the conversation, don't.
It's a public forum, nobody owns "the context". Until some more people weigh
in, I don't have any idea what "the list" (or, in this case, the three
lists) cares about. Raw scale? Accuracy? User experience? Nine other things
we haven't even mentioned? None of this?
