No, Mark ... the latter part of my response was a statement which related to
the ORIGIN of the conversation. So, I did NOT accuse you of flaming

However, I DID accuse you of demanding TOO much from the less-experienced

Like the fella said, KIS ... Keep it Simple. If we have something that is
powerful, the more experienced user will NOT be limited. If the interaction
with the system allows the less-experienced user to THRIVE as well ... its a
win-win situation.

Remember, too ... that sometimes a question is asked "tongue-in-cheek" to
elicit a further response or INTERACTION. SO, when we make ASSUMPTIONS
about what somebody else was thinking we could be all wet. My wife
certainly doesn't like it when I tell her I know what she's thinking!.

*** Mark from watching some of the work you've done and your creation with
Sneezy/Clarinet I am constantly amazed & sincerely appreciative of all the
work that you do. THANKS! ***
