   No, it is a paradigmatic example of a vague abstract question, akin
   to asking "What is Unix"?

Unix is a operating system developed by Bell labs.  That is quite
concrete.

   Hint: there is no agreement about what the best direction to go is.
   Now, do you want to help us figure out what the best direction
   would be?

If you stop accusing me of things that I didn't do, I didn't berate
anyone, I didn't insult you or Marcus.

You have gone from `work on what you want', to `there is no
direction', and now you say `will you help us set a direction'.  If
you could stick to one of them, it might actually be easier to
understand you and actually stop me from having to repeat myself all
the time.
