No, and I don't have time right now to deal with the great number of  
words you have dedicated to promoting your ideas. This is a shame,  
since you could have a point, but I simply can't expend the effort to  
try to find it given other priorities. Sorry, this is not something  
I'm happy about, but it's not entirely due to my being busy (i.e.,  
it's not just me -- it's you :-/).

May I suggest using fewer words when replying than you have?  
Generally proportionate responses would be best. I'm assuming fair  
play, i.e., that people are not resorting to too short and dismissive  
a style of replying. I'm not doing that here, I'm just letting you  
know I don't have time to plow through what you have written. Maybe  
someone else on the list has the time.
