Blatantly false. Your motive is highly relevant as any analysis produced
would have to meet your standard. Thus, whoever produced such an
analysis would have to consider not just what you want but why so that a
full, detailed and exacting paper could be produced to satisfy your
demand for such a paper.

Seems like a request to me.

Once again, you're requesting an analysis be provided whilst
simultaneously claiming you're not requesting anything. Your repeated
attempts to bully and intimidate volunteers to doing is disgraceful. It
would appear that you are shameless.

You're the person who wants this thing done. You've not convinced me,
nor it'd seem anyone else on this list, of a need for me to lift a
finger to do this thing for you. You then passively suggest that the
decision is bad.

> I might come up with sucn analysis, but I doubt it would help anyone.
You're allegedly not requesting anyone do anything, then request someone
to do something, then say that you won't do it yourself, and the thing
you're after wouldn't help anyone anyway.

hahahahahaha ... hahaha

Go have a cry, (Felipe Contreras). Or find someone else to try and bully.

Or better still, before having a crack at someone for mistakenly
pressing the wrong REPLY button, install and use a spell checker that
enforces proper spelling of words between pressing SEND and actually
sending your emails.
