I am very interested in understanding people's points of view and ideas.
That's how I learn. While I would like the SMB URI scheme and it's
implementations to be pedantically correct, I'm really not interested in
having nit-pick wars. The latter are degrading to everyone.
I'm asking for your assistance in verifying that I'm understanding what
you're saying. I *want* to understand what you have to say. I cannot ask
questions or argue a different perspective if I don't understand the point
you are making. Neither can I conceede the point.
