Again, why is this subject driving you so mad?

Now before you load your "convincing gun tm" again, let me state this:
1. I never argued in favor of flattened or deep. I just asked a question
to better understand some things. And some kind person already managed
to get that answered without such funny examples that I don't think will
convince anyone why deep is better (they only convinced me that you got
very pissed by anyone who asked for flattened).
