  The debug logs you posted disagree.  Many of the messages you posted
included debug logs that were *only* possible if you did extra edits.

  Many of the "different problems related to sql" were caused by
unnecessary edits you did.  The debug logs you posted are clear on that

  I understand that you think your methods were trying to solve the
problem.  We're trying to convince you that you need to change your
methods.  Do *less*.  And don't just follow instructions, don't do
*extra* things that aren't in the instructions.

  Those extra things caused 3-4 extra rounds of email on the subject,
where you posted problems, and we tried to convince you to *not* do the
work that caused the problem.
