    The linked opinion poll by Gasarch is a pretty fun read, and has a section with various academics’ thoughts on the matter:

    Only a few people will follow the proof. Whoever does will spend the rest of his life convincing people it is correct.

    Even though P6=NP people should still work on trying to prove P=NP to see what goes wrong. I think the P=BPP question is almost as interesting. I am appalled that people take for granted that P=BPP.
