The root of misunderstunding is your superficial knowledge of the
English language, which is obvious from your spelling (can you mailer
run spell-checker?) and grammatical mistakes. That in itself wouldn't
be a problem, but when you begin being stubborn about something you
misunderstood than it is. I guess everybody on this list was
surprisingly polite to tell you that, but I shall.
CW, used a common phrase "You want to do ...", which doesn't literally
imply that he knows what you want to do; it implies that is the best way
he knows of doing it.
Before replying the way you did, make sure that you thoroughly understand
the language you communicate in. Otherwise, _you_ could be
misunderstood for an overly arrogant person, and as a result recieve
much less positive input from this list.
