No, just stating my opinion for now. I've already tried the easy
approach, the "less expensive" ones with you.
Unfortunately, there are several abstract terms you are arguing with
(and you've only just added yet a few more.) It frankly takes time to
return to the basic ground work with concrete examples to flesh these
out so we can move forward again. I can now see that such would be
necessary with you.
So I'm faced with a choice. Put in the time with you or else simply
state my opinion so that others, at least, realize that yours isn't
the only way to see it. I can't now afford the former nor is this the
appropriate place for such long dialogue nor am I sufficiently
motivated by your responses, so I'm choosing to accept the latter.
There is nothing more sinister in it than that. I just don't agree
with your analogy. But I like your experimental attitude and was
interested in what you'd tried, all the same, and I've no quibble with
you on that score.
