While looking around for more reactions to the TPV policy I happened across something I'm embarrassed to say I hadn't noticed: this blog is on Crap's blogroll.
That Crap is, at least when blogging, a curmudgeonly sort who doesn't mince words makes such a thing doubly precious, like a compliment from that teacher who drove you hard and who you'll never forget. (I hasten to add there's a huge gulf between being curmudgeonly and being Greatly Disturbed.) I will do my best to live up to the honor.
