Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This was in the TOD Comments, after all, and a lot of complete nonsense gets posted by a lot of people and does not earn a disclaimer.  

Of course, some of the comments are very, very good, which is why I read them.  

But if dougr's analysis has defects, I would like to see them examined and spelled out, since the knowledge he assumes in developing his position seems to be the same information that the front-pagers are drawing on.  

The Fates are kind.

It does appear that TOD FPers and some regulars are beginning to get tired of people coming in with Gulf discussions. This might end up leading to a DKos-like "no conspiracy theories" ban - in this case "no Gulf of Mexico technobabble".

By laying out pros and cons we risk inducing people to join the debate, and losing control of a process that only we fully understand. - Alan Greenspan

The disclaimer was posted because that comment was widely linked to from many places (reddit or something like it and then by many others) and at one point half of the traffic to TOD was pointing at this comment.

The TOD crew is rather skeptical of the comment (I have no way to say either way, I haven't even read it in full)
