Does it seem as if I ignore what you say? I don't think that is a 
fair claim. By "deaf" I only described what happens when the 
wording is so strong that it takes away the attention from what 
one tries to convey.

I had hoped there weren't more to add. But since you force me to 
comment more: I only tried to hint that PC (Poster Child) is a 
controversal idiom - please don't use it. If by PC you only meant 
"bad example" (aPNG) then PC seems like a distracting overkill.

At least, it isn't clear to me what you meant by PC. If you feel 
adding something about PC, then I hope you will focus on 
clarifying what you meant. Or else, I suggest that we drop the 
poster child debate.
