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". How
does that make any sense?
