Some people may suggest the archives to cut off discussion. I suggest that
going to the archives is a matter of research.
Perhaps, as you say, something has changed recently that invalidates the
"old*" arguments or brings up new ones. Or maybe you have a new idea. Read
the archives to get perspective and focus on what has changed, and thus make
a better case. Otherwise, your new perspective will be lost in the huge and
tedious mass of very, very stale argument. Certainly, if there has been a
new idea posed on the topic recently (other than the "Merit Badges") I have
missed it.

* Some of the arguments are only a few months old - we aren't talking
ancient history here, despite the venerable term "archive".
