But no reader can twist it anyway he/she wants to. There's still the text. I think it would be nihilist to assume otherwise.

Since this is getting off-topic, I'd suggest any answers should be directed to me, but as my holiday is ending and I'm getting back to work (and less Rara-Avis posts), I won't guarantee any long and detailed answers. (I'll still have to answer Mark.)
