I let it go through this time, but let that be the end of it.

We all know Al thinks there would be no research impact/access problem
at all if universities would onlt stop hoarding their limitless resources
and instead spending them instead on S/L/P, where they belong...

It is not that this sinister hypothesis is "irrelevant," but that it is
false, and does not become less so by dint of endless repetition.

Besides, all Greg had asked for was an eprint of Al's paper, a request
far closer to the heart of the matter under discussion here than Al's
conspiracy theory.
