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?
