This indicated that there was a fundamental misunderstanding about the
purpose of the build, which I felt needed to be addressed. (ie it always
was a custom build).

And even in your self quote, above, there was the statement about
whether it could be updated or not. No one had ever told me that it
shouldn't be updated. A wiki entry which can't be updated? Contrary to
the spirit of wiki, I think.

These were the issues I was addressing.

However, let's not rehash the whole thing again.
