to the converse remark. Neither then nor now should Warren,
or others, seek to elevate it to a "conjecture" by Chris.
I have found Warren's contributions fruitful enough to set
aside his unfortunate tone in communicating them. Yet I am
still puzzled why he seems to need to be so combative in
what is, quite frankly, a place where he should not expect
the type of serious review that he might gain by taking the
trouble to write up his ideas in an appropriate form for
scrutiny by a more rigorous mathematical community.
In any case, thanks Warren, for the maths.
