Just a brief comment:

I always thought these issues must be more or less clear for competent  
people like Burgess, Heck and Linnebo (though I don't think they  
express the critical points very clearly in their publications (at  
least the ones I know)).

However, I've had quite a lot of transaction with, e.g., British  
philosophers and, believe me, these issues are not at all clear to  
many of them - on the contrary, what I say seems to be almost a  
scandal for many. My paper is directed to them, and is a response to,  
e.g., Wright 2007.

I was simply trying to spell out as clearly as possible what I think  
are the relevant logical facts. I don't want to pretend I have  
anything really new to say for the real experts.

All the Best
