Another post inspired by a mailing list post.
Today, a young lady posted, without context of any kind, an email to a semi-public email listserv, asserting:

You see a lot of these kinds of things these days. Problem is, they’re completely pointless. As was pointed out by the Economist back in April of last year. And by Slate, in 2004. In fact, the only thing I can find which indicates these sort of stupid things have any merit is this guy, and then only in very limited circumstances.
