I don't insist in anything. This message was stalled because days ago I used
another mail address that's not subscribed. (I hope that) you can see that's
the very same message that was then resent and discussed.

In the message you're answering to, I'm clearly saying that it's better to
read the documentation than to make tests programs or making guesses. You're
quoting selectively to suggest that I say the opposite.
That's childish. The original message is there for anyone that wants to read
it. I can be wrong, but let me be wrong saying what I say, not anything
