I have no idea why your first reaction was like this, since Jens gave  
you some useful, objective, sensible feedback. If you'd like to  
improve your development skills and get better at what you are doing,  
you are well advised to take such feedback seriously, question it,  
discuss it, and learn from it. As well as with any other feedback you  
got from this mailing list.
