+Timothy Gowers  I do treat some of these worries in subsequent posts, in particular in the third installment, called 'jumping to conclusions'.

But there are still some worries worth voicing, I think, and so I'd be curious to hear what you think of what I say in later posts if you have the chance to get to them.
