while i applaud your efforts, i disagree with your presumption to be
able to surmize from the rants of John Young, what John Young was
intending to say to an audience, rather than what he was evoking as

here is the crux of the issue! and i agree whole heartedly.

the problem with the internets, is the earth humans let upon it. and
in the best of the best of exclusive internets, it is the choice earth

 to all earth humans - poor, mediocre, and excellent alike!
