Funny, I was going to say exactly the same thing to you.  The fact 
that the KR community lives in a narrow little bubble and ignores the 
implemented systems world is just as bad as the fact that we 
implementors have gotten out of touch with our logical roots.  The 
whole idea of my email was that we should stop attacking each other's 
needs and work towards consensus.  The fact that my mail solely 
generated attacks makes me very depressed.
