It is not so much the technical details that are the problem.

It is the LEGAL problems and potential legal problems that are at the 
root of my complaint.

Telling me that I have the technical details wrong does not help.  I 
have very carefully tried to move the discussion away from secondary 
technical points and onto the strategic issues that are not being addressed.

I find it very frustrating that the technical points are made over and 
over as if they were somehow answers to the legal and strategic 
problems.  If you think I have been rude, consider that ignoring the 
more important issues that I am trying to raise is equally if not more rude.

If I have resorted to name calling or personal characterizations, then I 
do owe you all an apology, but I do not apologize for trying to get the 
non-technical aspects of the problem presented.
