No one is "stopping it."  And it is quite clear that you intend to
continue contending.

May I ask, however, what the "Paleontological" purpose of this all is?

If you go back to the archive and read the series of posts in this
specific thread carefully, you may understand that my intention and, I
believe that of others, was to clarify the nature of the "research"
behind a given piece of art, rather than to argue for the
appropriateness of one term or another for the artist: the latter
notwithstanding, perhaps it might be appropriate to rename the thread
since, clearly, we're talking about apples and oranges here.

My intention, specifically, for commenting, is to get this "unstuck."

Maybe there is nothing to be said that hasn't been said before.
