Traditional techniques have failed to resolve the case in question --
whether or not VHF oscillations occur, and how to best suppress them if they
do -- in at least 3 years of near-daily interchange on this reflector. The
combatants are personally motivated to conclusively prove their hypotheses;
based on the continuing polarization, no one has come close.
One must consider effectiveness when comparing techniques, not just
convenience or familiarity.
