Just a minute. Please let not build scientific con/pro rules from one or
two examples. As presented in Thomas' and Alexander's memos there are a lot
of parameters involved which interact together. The interest of an analysis
is to permit to understand the interactions and to reduce the parameter set.
I reviewed quickly these two mails. May I comment that I did not understand
anything. This is not a négative comment: I am working on an analysis of a
different part of the network systems trying to reduce a lot of concerns to
their roots. So I tried to see if I could peruse the mail and understand
it. Not yet. As I did not for Joanna's and William's Best Practices read
the same way, but preceiously archived.
I would suggest that Thomas (?) puts his current ideas/findnings on a web
site and that Joanna/Williams work on it to see if there can be some
cross-pollenization with their ideas. Then that we try to reduce all this
and additions to some limited logical parameter tree. I do not know if it
will work, but the GA is probably the most diversified Internet competent
and motivated mailing list. The opportunity to define a "GA's Rules" to
replace the "Roberts Rules" is unique and worth the try.
Thank you Thomas for keeping the momentum.
