  Your first message was complaining that HOW it works was a surprise.  Despite documentation and the debug output which explained this.

  That's a problem we can't solve.

  If it breaks the POLA for you, that *also* means HOW it works is your main issue.  Because POLA has nothing to do with *why* it works that way.

  If you want to know WHY it works this way, it's open source.  The code is available to you.  Learn.

  I'm arguing against the idea that "I don't have to read the documentation or the debug output, despite copies pages telling me to do so.  Instead, if it doesn't work the way I expect, it's my right and duty to complain publicly about it.  It doesn't matter that I got this software for free.  I have every right to expect that it does what I want.  I'm not going to suggest *improvements* to the documentation, in order to to make it clearer for others in my situation.  Instead, I'm just going to complain."

  Enough.  Stop arguing.  This is your only warning.
