Your response always answer the questions that I did not expect. For
example, here I have no interest to doubt there is a problem with g(r)
plugin. Second, I did not learn too much from your implication. So, please
explicitly answer people's question instead of wording them. Though I still
thanks for this thread which let me know it is very important to select how
precisely the two objects when study RDF. Thanks.
