Other users have requested this conversation stop
or move offline.  Some persons did mail
me offline in the same vein and I responded
essentially to say I could see no point
in continuing "I'm right, you are wrong"

Please stop this conversation.  That I differ from
the perspective below is not a reason to try
and harrass by continuing a pointless conversation.

Stop.  Enough is enough.
