I'm not emotionally attached, just wordy, no worries.

Ok, thanks for taking for taking time to explain. I am not a social
person and it is a common experience for me to pitch for ideas that get
accepted as soon as someone else does, so I'm always interested. You
were right, my one-track mind would read:

>> why do we not foo?
> because foo is useless?

as an question-answer pair; the question mark looks more like a sarcasm
indicator in my language use than a sincere question.
