Nonsense, Walta. Your words of wisdom cast a valuable perpective on the
question under discussion, and it was my pleasure and duty to attaboy you. 

I'm further inclined to make this observation: 

Although discrimination has always been the hallmark of the connoisseur, so
called, and is often associated with conservative aesthetic tendencies, the
greatest potential for delight lies in having a personal sense of Beauty
which is generous, inclusive and ecumenical, rather than one which dismisses
categories a priori. This is why the unsophisticated so often seem to enjoy
things more than other people.
