I have read the emails fully. Sure, I see where you said there were
other reasons later in the discussion, but that's not what your original
point was. When I addressed that initial point, you ignored the basis
of what I wrote and instead brought up a technicality regarding the
scope of the switch. When I pointed that out, you told me you ignored
the point I was initially trying to make because it was irrelevant. All
I have been trying to do is simply make the point that it is relevant.
Thank you for finally acknowledging the veracity of my argument. I
guess the third time really is the charm.

I am fully aware of your status and I never said anything about someone
having to do anything single-handed. Do read what I have read fully and
please don't put words in my mouth.
You know, you could've simply replied to my original take on your
self-described opportunistic proposal with something like, "No, Tom, I'm
not just making this proposal because of Shellshock. I really think
there are some merits to dash. Here are a few..." or something like
that. Instead, I get a terse, cherry-picked, technical comment as to
the scope of the switch followed by a bunch of rhetorical slight of hand
as you change the focus. Let's stay on target from now on, OK?
