Oh well, at least it is discoverable.  Hopefully that's the end of the

As an expert on the subject of espousing views only to see the truck
rumble by in the same old direction anyway, it is hard to know if or
when your viewpoint might contribute to peoples' understanding of things
and affect things slightly a long way down the line.  Which is probably
more of a win if less detectable.
