I quoted it for reference in the beginning of this subthread not too long ago. You wanted to know my definitions for some terms/ words I used, to which I gave answers with more questions from me, but to which you refused to answer because of the posting style (which you had used to ask me 1st). This "refresh" subthread isn't as long + old as the original, should have been easy to find in the archive, if you don't have a local copy anymore. But you shouldn't have forgotten the following points of my previous posts in this subthread to which you responded so cut off above, because they need some clarification in the light of your latest post to the thread "Need help with security vulnerability in Vanilla server".

This means: you _can_ change. But what's different now? Why didn't you respond your preferred immediate and "split up" way as that thread came in? Why can't you handle my posts when they are in the same form? ====== If you haven't read the big original one before, FYI: - "Thanks for the vote of confidence in our services. I take this as an attack." At first I thought "no, _you_ shouldn't feel attacked, because the request was not directed at you as much as the others". But then ... if you feel that way ... then something must be wrong and has been wrong all along. Even though I still don't mean to attack anyone to do harm, I actually mean to make people think and maybe change. If this equates to attack, then I'm sorry you see it that way. - You asked me "When? Cite reference. Give link to archive" when I explained that the personalized "dead line" summary request was only a consequence of a previous general attempt to get responses from the -- until then -- unconfirmed "people in charge".
