My reading comprehension is just fine, thank you.

I only insult those who poison the mailing lists and community, and 
waste the valuable time of our contributors.

I'll say it again: this discussion will continue to go nowhere if 
certain participants insist on adopting an attitude of entitlement.  If 
you don't like how something works, that's fine!  It happens all the 
time.  But repeatedly asserting "that sucks" and "that's pretty lame" 
and responding to people with messages laced with sarcasm won't get you 
what you want (as has occurred several times in this thread).  I can 
understand that a new behavior that doesn't fit with your workflow can 
be disconcerting and frustrating to get used to.  And maybe sometimes 
the change isn't the right way to go.  But insisting that your way is 
right and demanding changes or new options isn't going to get you what 
you want.  If you're fine with that and are only here because you want 
to vent, I'm here to inform you that this is not the place for it.
