As to what he was "bringing it back to", it was to yet another iteration, in your original post in the thread, of your incessant harping on barriers to entry. (I agree with your irritation, FWIW, and have no quarrel with your keeping it in view.)

So, please read it literally. I meant exactly "Good work [for bringing it right back to a point that is very important to Jeff]. And, Yes [I agree with you (and Jeff) on that point]."
