Hey, I had to look that word up in a dictionary.  I thought it was an
insult, but it's not - merely accurate.  Thanks for the new word, Miles.

Yes, I dislike TMM, but not only viscerally, intellectually as well - it
takes a starkly simple and intuitive concept, the mark, and turns it
into something complicated with masses of detailed rules.  Still, enough
people like it that there must be substantial benefit to offset the
complexity.  Thanks to the the people (Drew, Stefan, ...) who've made
this understandable.
