Didn't you ever learn that it's not what you say, but how you say it?  
That's all I was asking. You could have expressed the same ideas without 
the same attitude.  And I'd never tell you your ideas are worthless.  
All I would do is say that I prefer another way for such-and-such 
reason. A little tact goes a long way.
