Please stop clobbering the bugtracker with low-quality reports of
this kind.  The "Details:" section of your report is inscrutable
gibberish, some of the content - as far as it can be guessed what
it is supposed to mean - is obvious bogus advice, some of it is of
very little importance (like the Oxford comma), and the patch is
obviously not fit for committing.

Such reports are not helpful at all.  Triaging them causes more
work than it is worth, and we simply don't have the time to do such
triage work.  In fact, the most severe problem the bug tracker
currently has, limiting its usefulness, is that it is hard to find
the relevant tickets among lots of noise.

I feel tempted to close this ticket without even looking at the details.

Please only open a ticket in the future if you:

 (1) Provide a very concise and clear hand written description.
 (2) Focus on one problem at a time.
 (3) The problem is really important.

Others who are better at reporting may slightly stretch these rules
and still be helpful, but you have amply demonstrated in the past
that you *must* follow these rules very strictly, or what you do
is more of a nuisance than of any help.
