This is your assessment of the situation, which I'm fairly certain Alan does
not share. What I'm asking for is that we all work toward a solution, and not
criticize the motives/approach of one another while doing so. If you find
working with Alan on this issue aggravating, then perhaps it's time to leave
this particular discussion to others.
