Did you read what I quoted? The poster basically questioned any discussion of author's message and theme! I mean, sure, let's keep the microscopes out of it, but that doesn't mean that we can't do anything beyond "enjoy" reading. After all, if it's done right, analysis really can contribute to enjoyment.

There needs to be balance, and the post I was replying to was definitely not advocating any balance.
