btw, about the balloon-vs-MANETs example in ad hoc networks that you pointed to: this may in fact not be so far off for some situations, it reminds me of mobile sinks in WSNs (yes, again, other people had similar ideas already). the right thing to do would be to build it and systematically evaluate it against various scenarios of MANETs, if you want to make the point that MANETs are useless. indeed, you might then find that MANETs could often be replaced with a balloon. neat idea, and a nice result worth publishing, once it's done.

(though, people have given you counterexamples on that other list - you won't ALWAYS be able to replace a MANET that way; i would say that the world isn't as black and white as you describe it)

However, systematically shooting down people who have invested some of their precious time entertaining the discussion you started, and telling them that their methods are no good and work irrelevant is at best not conducive to constructive interactions and at worst down right awful etiquette.
