I didn't see this when I was responding to the rest of Klon's post, so I'll address this one specifically, since it seems to single me out.Part 2.
the reason latenlazy tries to invalidate all volume measurements is his refusal to accept what they show
Perhaps, Klon, you should apply that same judgment to yourself. Perhaps the reason you've seemed obsessed with trying to invalidate me without any actual substance is because you refuse to accept what my arguments show. If you have issues with my arguments you might look more credible actually addressing their substance rather than trying to turn our discussion into a character indictment on me. As I've said many times before, you can do whatever you want with my arguments. If you don't want to believe them then don't. If you think if my arguments aren't substantively sound, address where you don't think they're substantively sound. But, if you don't have a substantive reason other than that you just refuse to consider them because you don't like to hear them then be honest about that, instead of pretending to have genuine interest in what I have to say.
