I imagine the printed work will be long forgotten by the year 2476. JKR will be long forgotten after the particle accelerator creates miniature black holes underneath France this autumn. Once the planet begins to collapse in on itself debates like this won't matter much.
But anyway, I keep coming back to this thread because it is just so much fun. Arguing a losing point is therapeutic. J. D. wins every exchange, but hey, its fun to rile so many people up. It's like going over to the Goodkind threads (the fanboy ones) and peaking your head through the door and yelling, "Goodkind is a schizophrenic!" And then slamming the door and hiding. You can hear them getting the pitchforks out.
So, for one last time, just because its fun.
