I have a lot of respect for Otto and what he does for the community. I mean
a LOT of respect.

With that said, in this case, and in many others, he does routinely cross
over from "strong but polite disagreement" to "insulting ridicule".

Personally, if I asked HOW to do something, I wouldn't typically expect to
be told how stupid I was for wanting to do that particular something. If you
know how to do it, just tell me how, and move on. This thread is 30+ emails
long, and he still doesn't have an answer. You've spent more time arguing
about the "why" than it would have taken to just tell him the "how".
