RIght. This is sort-of my point. I've seen people who still don't understand the 100 doors explanation but get it once this concept is clarified. Meanwhile, I've seen people who still don't understand after explaining this concept but the 100 doors thing (or something else) does it. There's no telling what, if anything, is going to make someone understand. The "if only they had explained it like so" is how you also get wrapped up in a stupid argument.
