Marko, welcome to the community.  We enjoy technical discourse, even 
debate.  It's clear that you bring a lot of knowledge, intelligence, and 
passion.  But you have been involved in a number of long contentious 
threads in the last few weeks.

You are right that you and Steven have had a hard time communicating. 
You are part of "you and Steven", it would be at least polite to 
consider that part of the reason for the difficulty has to do with your 
style.  It can be brief and contrarian, which puts people off.  Perhaps 
if you tried to understand the gap and bridge it more, people would be 
less inclined to think that you were trying to widen the gap.
