And what do we have to do to get you to actually condescend to
tell us what that bug might be, O Wise and Glorious Ilya?

If there's one thing you do that pisses people off most, it's this thing
right here.  "I know something, I won't tell; you're not smart enough to
understand me so I'll just be smug about it and make you guess or beg me"
is a real piece of work.  And it's quite finished.  So could you please
move on to something else, like an explanation?
