Again, is it about quibbling about tactics or solving the problem.

Stop quibbling, contribute a solution. That's my fundamental point. Each 
time someone attempts to make a contribution you quibble without ever 
providing an alternative. It' really really easy to quibble. Much harder 
to do and be judged.

How about a solution from you? Then sit back and enjoy the effects of 
others quibbling about your solution without any sense of what its taken 
you to produce said solution etc..
