I'll be happy if the problem is just fixed.

I guess we have a different understanding of what "to diagnose" means.

The devs are human. Of course they can and do make mistakes. But if one says he understands something I can accept that until proven otherwise.

True. And it can waste time, and yes, I'm mostly concerned about my time.

Good for you, I'm not that charitable. I do know what the stickies say. I've read all of them, several more than once or twice. It is interesting that on one hand you say the devs are not gods (which is true), then you argue to follow their instructions (in the stickies) as though its gospel.

I don't know where that comment comes from or how you got to that from what I wrote.

Good to know your view of the principles involved here, although I think I already had a pretty fair idea. We are all human and therefore can be wrong. I could even be wrong about that last comment.
