And conversely nobody 
can distinguish the current demo
from a cheap fake using a less good 
algorithm  *unless* he 
examines and understand. the code.

FB^3 deserves demos so well designed that
that the virtues of FB¬3 really kick but
in a way that convinces every observer
who merely has a binary.

Why you are irritated escapes me.  
I have said that your silver bullet algorithm
needs a better gun to prove its worth.
You reply that I am insulting your silver bullet.
In fact I am at worst insulting the gun.

Cheers
