Perhaps I'm speaking out of turn, but you sound like a 4 year old  
when he does something that warrants taking away his favourite toy. I  
mean seriously, grow up already. You've made your points very well in  
your original posting, but your tone has progressively become more  
and more childlike. Perhaps you could read "How to win friends, and  
influence people" by Dale Carnegie; I think you would benefit greatly  
from the read.

Take this advice as you see fit.
