Er, *you're* the one who chose to pick a fight with me over an email 
that *wasn't* in response to one of yours.  But feel free to ignore the 
mailing list archives and believe otherwise.

But you're certainly correct that this is a complete waste of time.

Whether or not *certain* people are attempting to provide feedback -- at 
least useful, constructive feedback -- is certainly debatable.

That was a general statement, not directed at you.

Then... shut up?

Again, I did not respond to any of your emails until your response to me.

Wow.  "Clearly" you should check the mailing list history and figure out 
exactly who started this little digression between you and me over the 
past couple hours.  It certainly isn't me.  (Big hint: my original reply 
was to an email from Grant, not from you.  *You* chose to jump in at 
that moment.)

But anyway, as you said, this is a complete waste of time.  I won't be 
participating in this discussion any longer.
