I don't know if you are just getting carried away, or genuienly
confused, but I am going to assume the former.  It's pointless to
continue explaining things to you if all you want is to disagree for
the sake of disagreement.  If I am wrong, and confusion is at the root
of your problem to understand my words, maybe somebody else has the
patience to explain, as sure as hell I haven't anymore.
