Unwittingly, you make a valid point. Loki's bond FAQ --due to its errors of fact and theory-- is an intellectual tar-baby better avoided by more knowledgeable readers.

Charlie,

There've been ample opportunities over the past year or so for you and everyone to point out errors of fact. It's seems a little late in the game to object on such a global basis. As for theory, the hallmark of a good FAQ is to provide multiple viewpoints where they exist so that beginners don't get confused by internal board disputes. I applaud Loki for inviting you to provide yours rather than taking offense at your comments. I don't think I'd be as charitable had I done the work that he and many others on the board did to produce the draft FAQ.

You might have noticed that parts of the FAQ do point to outside resources for explanations of some basic concepts. That said, it's valuable for TMF members to have a one-stop place to access available information, especially on basic concepts that are necessary to get much from the board.

Personally, I think your viewpoints are interesting and informative, but I also temper them with the viewpoints of others. It's unfortunate that some of your comments seem calculated to be deliberately insulting to others whom I also respect here.
