bubbers44, no problem. My whole point is you don't need to say you're sorry...I'm offering feedback that your views are well and thoroughly understood. I'm not trying to change your mind. I don't need you to "believe in Airbus". But it would be pleasant and interesting to advance discussions on points of understanding, most of which don't involve the Airbus.
If a Rutan or an FAA guy said those things that's really disappointing...I would have expected more comprehension and thought, but there it is and we move on.
