Speaking only for myself, I'd rather see it die. I have to say that
so far the material I've seen from Hurtado doesn't impress me, either
in its scholarship or in its tone. He still hasn't addressed your
main point, but since he used Colwell's method it must be right. At
least that seems to be his view. I vote for letting it go.
