Please re-read what I wrote. Where did I ever complain about it being ignored? I said quite the opposite, that I fully understood that it may not be other peoples' cup of tea. That was fine. What I was objecting to was the sneering contempt that the work was being subjected to.
However, to show willing, pleas email me a copy of that paper & I shall endeavour to read it. I have many things going on at the moment and don't have time to pursue all the things I'd like to; you will not that I'm not the most frequent of contributors to that list. But since you regard this paper as important, I promise I'll give it my attention. However, don't expect me to get into making any judgements as to whether it's more or less significant than the numbers business. I don't think such judgements can be made & it is not helpful to make them.
