Dr. West,

If you're not going to accept the assumptions under which the question was
asked--and they aren't unreasonable--then your response is not constructive.
(Not to mention the potential your response has for starting a flame war
that's completely foreign to the purpose of b-greek.)

Fortune for mortals and misfortune stand.
Therefore the man that lives at ease should look
For rocks ahead, and when he prospers most
Watch lest he suffer shipwreck unawares.
