Yup, did. Much of the response is for the general audience. Sorry I played off your post a bit. I have found filling by quantity is the quickest way to get a decent oil level. No repeated checking the dip stick etc. Just dump it in, make one quick check of the level to verify it is all there and go.
Townsend suggests the extra oil helps oil the chains. Chains don't take much oil, a mist will do. There is a lot of oil in the chain case from leaks from the chain tensioners, cam and balance shaft bearings, and drain back from the head. I think his concern came from the soft balance shaft drive sprocket wear in some of the earlier 2.3 engines.
