One wants maximum entropy not only from one's RNG but also from one's
discussions about randomness.

Sadly, entropy is measured based on the level of "surprise" at the
content, and the level of surprise is going down in the current
discussion. As surprise goes to zero, so does interest on the part of
the couple thousand people reading along.

I'd like to ask participants to please:

1) Write compactly but clearly.
2) Avoid repeating themselves.
