Well, you clearly have a biased opinion in this matter, so I'm not sure a discussion will be of any benefit. However, I must say that it is only your opinion that I began the rhetoric in my OP.
My question was a straight-forward question, looking for real answers. There was no rhetoric. I was looking for answers, not trying to make a statement.
I will admit that perhaps I had some bad assumptions in my OP. But that is far, far different from rhetoric.
Really??? That's the ONLY reason? Are you an accountant? Is this an accounting issue???
I already explained what I meant by "overhead", yet you can't seem to let the issue go.
And it is actually an issue irrelevant to the main topic of this discussion.
Finally, rather than focus on the positive part of my conclusions, you choose to focus on your biased negative views. Do you disagree with:
Did you even notice that I reversed my original statement, and admitted that my original impressions were incorrect? Really, what more to you want????
It seems to me that you could have chosen to take the high road and focused on something that we all can gain from this discussion, rather than drag us down into the low road, which will only subtract from the discussion.
I suggest that we all try to keep our discussion focused on the technical issues.
Of course, if you have any technical issues with my above conclusions, please feel free to discuss.
