Down boy!!
-my goodness, people are starting to place bets on the dog fight that is
about to ensue!

You had a lot of valid points, but the need for the number of pokes in the
eyes was probably not there.
- You have dually noted your opinion on this and I doubt that anyone
questions how strongly you feel about it.  I haven't read the 50+ posts
after this yet, I am still catching up, but it is very difficult to respond
to your arguments when you have coupled the opposing argument with words
like you have used.  You insinuated that anyone who opposes your stance is
'stupid' and an 'idiot'.  Don't get me wrong, I agree with your position,
but please try not to tell others that they are stupid for not feeling the
same, it's not necessary.

 ...that to -- *zero*...

... waste time... arms race with spam bots...

it's *stupid*... immensely, immeasurably *stupid*...

i am constantly overwhelmed by how completely *dim* the counter
argument is:

who cares if you think the company policy is stupid?

now, what real arguments can *anyone* bring to bear?

... i never *asked* for those features,
but they got forced on me, and now i read "converted from"...
...we look like idiots...
...the ones who can change it aren't listening...
