This *is* an old bbs - but is throwing it all away (what Mary Midgley calls
a "slum-clearance" strategy) really the only answer?
Here, who can say he/she may find a solution without knowing the goal of

This misunderstands (and underestimates) the unique problem of the VMs.
Until we can be certain about any of the basics - the early provenance, the
structure, the page order, the character set, the content, the intention,
in fact *anything* - I believe that we cannot satisfactorily construct the
kind of scientific methodology you would like.
You must have a well done structure to exchange in a logical sense. See my
webpage for *example* :
Who gets to choose the categories?
Please think at this : order, method and structure are the keys for a good
