Ah. Well, there are allegedly two sides to a discussion. The people
who suposedly are trying to force you to do things aren't here. If you
continue to "discuss" and ignore all the people you're talking to, you
shouldn't be surprised that folks like me get confused.

I've seen hundreds of "discussions" online that have gone the same
way. That's what I mean when I refer to "beating a strawman". That's
what I refer to as "talking past each other". That's what always
happens whenever this topic comes up on this mailing list.
