The point, of course, is the always-yet pending, perennial futurity of your scholarly vindication.
Frankly, I’m surprised you haven’t just gone ahead and adopted the Dr. Shades thesis that I am actually fabricating the whole thing.
We'll see what we can see, perhaps, eventually.
At any rate, “future vindication” is something that quite often must be patiently awaited. But truth has a way of eventually compelling such vindication—sooner or later. It may very well take a few years before my findings, as presented in August, and as further elaborated by the forthcoming book-length study, will gain widespread credibility, but I believe the day will eventually come when those findings will achieve something close to a “consensus” of acceptance—for the simple reason that they can be shown to be correct.
You take my point, then, I suppose.
