I wish they would say that. but then again that would have proven me
being right with all my "rants" about dictatorship which they probably
try to avoid.

like we are now for about 200 posts.

I'm not going to give an argument against it ^_^ i agree with you on

I am kinda stunned by the divided community in this subject..
specially since probably about 90 - 95% is in favor of the change and
roughly 5% isn't and yet they fail to admit that they made a "small"
mistake 4 years ago. interesting and sad to see. This whole discussion
gave me a good insight in all of that.

I however don't intent to put more heat in this discussion so will be
a little more friendly in my responses now (and shorter ones).
