Food for Thought
I do not endorse this hypothesis, nor do I criticize it. I merely offer it as “grist for the mill”.
Actually, this is a specific example of a more general tendency: when I think something is worth looking at, it doesn’t follow that I agree with it, or that I even think it has obvious value. Sometimes I think it’s worth looking at because it’s obviously wrong, or wrong in a way that is illuminating.
I suspect this is one of the many reasons why people on the Internet sometimes don’t understand what I say.
