Stephen and JD are exactly right.

There is also the fact that your post here was dramatically TL;DR.  Like 6-10X too long.

Anywhere you go, ask a question -> get an answer.  Post a novel -> get critiqued on style points.

Stack Exchange is for (reasonably) objective technical questions, not debates.  I totally see the point of raising the question, but StackExchange is not the proper place to raise it.
