Actually, I've followed the discussion sort of half-heartedly. I just haven't much interest in 2 Thessalonians. However, I think I'll jump in and say a word to Paul Dixon and see how it bounces. David Moore is not one that I often agree with, but he's always been the soul of courtesy, he's thoughtful, and he's been around on this list a lot longer than I have. Let's see what happens ...
