Why not simply and directly state what you mean? Whence the incredulous "Really?" Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition, but I would prefer Terry Gilliam's comfy chair to the insinuation that my intellect is lacking ("You don't get why it's a big deal...?"). I've already addressed -- repeatedly at this point -- why Tolkien surceased his Hobbit re-write. What is the point you're trying to make with this literary footnote, fascinating as it is in its own right?
