Is a skewed paperclip common enough that this ten-cell predecessor should be added to the first post?

Why must we have such a binary mindset? Why not call them semidependent reflectors or something?

A switch engine made from three gliders can be stabilized earlier (in terms of when the fourth glider starts interacting) than one might think.
