It was a hard decision for me to make whether to mention your
recommendation to explain more carefully or not. If I did not mention
it it would have been as if I did not care to explain because your
message somehow implied that too. And when I did mention what you
wrote I might put more pressure on Eli which was not what I wanted.

And if I did not mention it it would have been like I was hopelessly
begging for someone to care about what I have suggested.

So I just did what I did to see if this could move things further
without anyone got too much feelings of being insulted.

Yes, if we can get back to that.
