SWL2002, let me see if I can help out. You are stuck in a rhetorical Mobius loop and are not gaining traction in arguing your point.
Argumentation consists of Logos, Ethos, and Pathos; technical argumentation is usually confined to Logos and Ethos. But you are using Pathos and many here are questioning the Ethos behind your arguments. That is why you are failing to effectively argue your point.
Logos involves logic, numbers, and is objective.
Ethos involves the credibility of the speaker.
Pathos involves the emotions, is subjective, and has no place in technical argumentation.
Your credibility is brought up again and again because we don't know who you are. To bolster the Ethos of your argument we must know your name and call sign. To bolster the Logos of your argument you must back up your argument with factual numbers and the sources of these numbers. And your argument would be strengthened further if you refrain from employing Pathos ("CB splatter box, crappy, etc."). And you are using what I call deflection, which is to attempt to deflect the focus from a pertinent point to something that sounds the same but does not matter. For example, when asked your name and call sign, which are pertinent to the discussion, you ask for the person's SSN, which does not matter to this discussion.
You really need to take a nappy break for a while. You are taking this stuff all too seriously. Your pedantic post says much more about you than me.
