16 Nobody is inventing problems Jakub. Just because nobody has yet
17 complained does not mean that there is not a problem. If you can't see
18 the QA issues, then you really need to stop commenting in this thread,
19 because there are a lot of people who know better.
21 Furthermore, you are playing right into the hands of He Whom I Will Not
22 Name, thus allowing yourself to be trolled into sounding like an idiot
23 in public. You suffered from the same problem in the bbapm thread recently.
