Relative to the content of the thread discussion, I'd say "tangential"
was being too generous.  Maybe I should have added "to the thread" to
the end of that sentence for additional clarity?

It felt like you were selling something vaguely connected to what I was
actually looking for.  That may be my perception, but it does little to
encourage me to give you the benefit of the doubt.

The thread began with a citation of a recent paper:

James replied with a comment about his 1999 work:

You might read the thread before making additional meta-comments about
its content, never mind reading the references.
