Hey all,

I just wanted to chime in to say thanks for discussing this at length, and that I hope the discussion continues (especially now that it seems to have lost it's somewhat...competitive tone).

While I certainly bring my own past, my own opinions, and my own tastes...through which I'm viewing the thread, I'm learning a lot from my spot over here against the wall.

As someone with little, or more accurately nearly no art background (if anything, a somewhat non-art or even anti-art background), I don't really feel it's my place to opine on the subject, regardless of what those opinions may be...but I did want to make sure to thank everyone who's presented each/every side they have. I look forward to continuing on with reading the posts here for some time.
