Sure they do. But they may not give a flying F about JPT's original thesis that started this thread.

But why shut down the thread? None of the posts are offensive, and people who don't like them can stop reading whenever they like.
That's correct. The only way to "shut down a thread" (barring action by the administrator) is neglect of it by all posters.
