I've learned the hard way that sometimes how I ask a question in an 
email or forum can be misinterpreted by the reader, and the last thing I 
wanted to happen was for me to come off as saying something like "Why 
did we bother wasting our time with this?" I don't want to sound that 
way, and I certainly don't feel that way, but I can see how some might 
misinterpret it that way.

Sarcasm can be very hard to type and and portray correctly in writing, 
and I have had problems both ways... with sarcastic comments taken 
seriously, and serious comments taken sarcastically. And if you take my 
questions with a sarcastic edge to them, then yes, they can sound 
negative, but I didn't want them to be sarcastic.

And sometimes, I type without thinking of possible consequences, and 
other times, I type while thinking too much of the possible 
consequences. This is probably one of those times when I am over-aware.

Anyway, thanks for your answer. I appreciate it. And thanks too for not 
misinterpreting my questions.
