That's not an answer. Can you _please_ try answering the questions people ask 
you (I tried asking several, most of which were ignored). They are not intended 
rhetoric but an attempt to ascertain the technical motivation behind your 
position. If you keep avoiding them, it is hard not to feel that your position 
is not based on technical reasoning but in a set of rigid axiomatic beliefs, 
making the whole discussion rather pointless.
