I would not call this thread heated (I read that as there being any
animosity), far from it. Rich and I are both interested in how well
tests for the proportional odds assumption perform, and we are trying
to get a feel for that by exploring a variety of scenarios using
simulation. This process is very much like a brainstorm session: The
first one to speak doesn't have to be right, he is just setting the
proces in motion. I think that that is the status of my first
simulation, it got various useful elements, and Rich and I were
gradually expanding on it, and thus found also found the limitations of
this initial simulation. Normally this process happens behind closed
doors, and you only get to see the final paper, in which it looks like
those brilliant authors immediately saw what the relevant scenarios
are. Now you have had a glimpse into how such papers are really
created. Anyhow, as I should actually be working on my dissertation, I
have told Richard that I won't continue this process till I have
finished my dissertation.

This is an extended macro function, which took the macro x, and made
sure every element of x was separeted by only one space. See: 
-help extended_fcn- and -help macrolists-

It took a bit more than 11 hours on my relatively old university
