If you decide to not read my responses, I don't see how I can be blamed.

Weirdly enough, many other people got my point and understood why my solution
offered a working approach where your version didn't.

If that is rudeness, then yes, I was rude. Sorry for that.

Sorry, but when I write the code. I get to pick the way to go.

You have not (yet) offered a working replacement. So what mistake am I doing
when I go with the so far only presented *working* solution?

You criticize me for this?

Your "*big boss*" talk was rude and insulting, you cannot deny that. It was
at a level I connect with kindergarten. I'm sorry and appologize that I
decented to the same level there for a moment.

Again, I speak of strict technical merits. If it is "my" or "your" design
doesn't matter that much to me. I prefer the best *working* one.
