Sure, after you.
I notice that you posted a large amount of copied-and-pasted stuff
without context or analysis. Being now old and wary, I have started to
become disinclined to perform a great deal of analytical work for the
benefit of people who cannot bother to do it themselves.
My inference is that you'd appreciate it if other people stepped in and
performed for you, just because you ask in the form of a lazy handwave.
In a word, no. Sorry, got stuff to do that is more likely to produce
benefit in my eyes.
Perform some serious, thoughtful analysis, and then we might have a
basis for discussion. It would be, frankly, a first, a welcome
departure for years of lazy-ass editorialising and hyper-emotional
rabble-rousing with vanishingly little time spent even trying to analyse
and explain. As someone who spends _serious_ amounts of time on both to
attempt to benefit the technical community, I have found this pattern
of yours actively annoying, and finally came to the end of my patience
