|    Not surprisingly, I agree with Feth.

|    Al, get a grip. In 10 years nobody will care about 95% of our "exciting
|    research."

Another way to look at it is 95% of the previous research as well
chaff among the wheat, and knowlegable people can save newcomers the
pain of triage.  Why not save somebody a lot of time when it only
takes a few minutes, and may even get other on the list to read some
papers they wouldn't have known about?

But then I like to ask for references for myself from time to time so
I can't claim absence of bias ...
