When you find a post that is too good to be missed, nominate it here as one of the February, 2012, Posts of the Month (POTM). You message subtitle should include the author's name and the topic/thread title. Message Format:
Author: Author's Name Forum: Forum where posted Thread: Thread title Message #: Number and Link to the nominated message
Nominations should include a link to the nominated article, and a short comment on why the message deserves nomination.
Note: As always, this is not a thread for debates. Posts should be limited to nomination, seconds, congratulations, and acceptance statements by nominees.

I didn't agree to a thing in Frako's response. However, Frako's early response to this new thread was articulated well, addressing all of Chuck's cited points in a sensible, substantive and thought provoking manner.
I was editing my message while you were posting yours. Nevertheless thanks for the heads up.
Abe: When I went back to edit, I scrolled from the top, assuming that my message was the last. Perhaps you had already advised before I began editing, looking at the timing. My apologies for the need to explain, but don't want members to think I was not being honest as to the timing.

Yes, I will second that.

This must be in the running for Post of the Year! It's well-written, makes its case beautifully, is a fascinating read and had me following up all the links for more information. I take my hat off to this masterful analysis and it's author
