I was responding to a prolix message from arithmonic in which he
failed to make any new points - and attempting to do so
diplomatically. Doubtless it is a futile exercise - anyone with an
overfondness for capital letters is unlikely to value good writing.
Your points have been easy to understand - though I am not in a
position to judge the extent to which his methods differ from those
already appearing in the literature. Frankly, I don't care very much
since I am not exactly pining for methods for extracting roots - a
computer algebra system can give me hundreds of digits of precision in
small fractions of a second, which is way more than I'll ever need.
The topic is probably interesting and could make a good article for
say the MAA Monthly, but it is not exactly cutting edge.
