I did indeed read the thread. There were a small handful of replies with decent content; the rest was pretty much chaff.

The reason computer algorithms evaluate left to right is that they were coded that way. One could just as easily code them to evaluate right to left. Or using a different notation entirely, like RPN.

The rest of what you said I agree with and also mentioned a couple of posts up.
