There are many recurring themes on this list from calc, to %% and
others. I understand that I once you actually understand the problem
at hand and then the proposal and you still dismiss it, then I'm done
because you've made your decision. But not one person has yet to fully
understand what I proposed as a model. Some got very close. But it was
long before they got very close that I started getting criticism.

There wasn't a discussion. I find that a lot of people here just
listen long enough to find a flaw. They don't even really understand
it all, but they jump to criticism. It's not true of everyone or even
the majority, but there are certain people here. I have been one of
them from time and time and I know it's bad behavior and I try and
avoid it best I can. But it's hurtful to the community and it needs to
stop. I'll try as best I can.
