Mike, two things:
First, I hope what I said about multiple opinions on a forum like this one didn't overshadow my point that, given that the researcher takes the time to understand our interactions, I think of this as the PREFERRED information source.

And second, you have an uncanny ability to find the same metaphors in unrelated (on the surface, anyway) subjects as I do.
