Please stop yelling at me...

So there's no confusion, 98% of the people here are really nice folks, and this post is not targeted to you. It's the 2% that sends me testy emails complaining about this, or that, or the other thing that I want to directly address here. Or, actually, it's the most common complaints that need to be ...
