    Zach, on one side it's very easy for me. I just won't reply. This should
    cut this very short. Looking at the whole thread you'll find that he
    wanted to pass his non agreement with the interface, that is a pretty
    normal and legitimate thing, for a bug of the interface. Now, while non
    agreement imply a very own subjective way to see a thing, a bug means a
    very objective thing. That is, "it does not work". Now, when someone state
    something that is proven to be false ( it's not even an RTQA, it's a
    NOT-A-BUG ), and when this someone tried in every way to kill the
    interface ( for reason that I'm not aware about ), and also implied that
    "I do not understand", well I've been educated to respond. Look, I'm a
    very simple guy. You don't touch me and I'll be transparent like a ghost
    for you. You touch me personally, and I retaliate.
