Why are you responding to topics you do not understand?
I'm posting all the evidence, I'm making all the explanation, but all I 
get is some Wiki 101 response from PM, and emotional reaction from 
cowards posting private responses with no clue what I'm talking about.

First off: Do not ever patronize me. You're (and noone here is) in no 
position to do that, and if you think you are, I say you're deluded. Go 
practice your delusions on someone else.

Secondly, I haven't got any real help in reponse to my posts to make me 
productive so far (including one correct answer from P.Bowers because 
I'd already figured it out by the time he'd posted it, but I returned 
his favor with a thank you response anyway). I've all figured it out by 
myself. I've even took all that "lost in translation"-like responses 
from PM seriously and sincerely responded, posted insights and a patch. 
That was a mistake; apparently I've been so much submissive without 
taking anything, and now I'm getting spoiled nobility attitude expecting 
me to spoonfeed them. That will not happen.
And I'm not interested in anything you, or anyone else, have to say me 
in private. If you do not have the guts to post it in public, back off.
