Er, I've raised some issues, as have others over the years. I 
don't know what your problem is. I'm not trying to shock or 
troll. But I think it's ok to talk about D on 
Ain't it? And I'm learning interesting things and it's 
interesting to hear what other people (not the fanboys and those 
with a vested interest) say. True, I'm not a fan of how things 
have developed, but who cares?

If you wanna be sarcastic, try to be less obscure. That might
