Yeah, Mario,
According to the archive search, Mario was the first to use the term
'placeholders' in the forum, around July 24, before I was here. I used the term later, as 'placeholder,' not having read yours yet.
It is a very useful term.
Mario, you were not reading my mind, nor do I guess you read anyone else's mind about why they quit corresponding with me...Interestingly,
you, a true scholar, did not discontinue corresponding, and in fact gave yourself "no excuse"... Maybe the others have no excuse. I don't know how thoroughly you have read my exchanges with others. Maybe a few of the others only realized they had been spamming the list and are incubating a new-generation of mind.

Those further assumptions you asked me about (ie being "Harv's agent") were artful and funny !
I am busy enough that any comment I make is not normally an extrapolation, but a minimum observation.
With Harv, I began extrapolating to illustrate where his logic and blurred language goes.
Harv's first name is not a generous amount of disclosure for someone who posts thousands of words of semi-spam per month.
Harv has referred several times to my
user names, so his name comes up for that reason.
In fact, he raised the issue first and most thoroughly.
I hope you don't quit corresponding for the reason of boredom if you have read this far.
It does seem tedious to have to go over this
-- for both of us.
