Questions about the facts themselves are valid indeed, and there was a
lot on this list on that matter.

Now, you were asking something else:
what are people's attitudes toward those facts (supposing they were
established facts which in itself is doubtful--compare e.g. what Alex
Dolgorukii and Liesel Deutsch or Bee Brown interpreted the 'facts') and
what they were going to do about it.

This is quite a different kind of question. I am wondering what you are
going to do with answers if you ever receive ones (it looks like all
related messages so far were about your question and my reply rather than
direct answers to your question, which in itself is remarkable).

This is a really good point. Consider looking inside yourself and asking,
what makes you ask this question (--again not a direct answer...).

I answered for myself to this question. Did you? Could you please share
your opinion and explain in great detail how and why it reaches down to
the very footings?
