Huh? What you're writing here just doesn't make sense to me.

If you want me to work with you you'll have to provide me with the exact problem you are 
facing instead of vague generalisms and suggestions.

You may have done so before but given the low signal to noise ratio of much of the conversation 
about this I may have missed it.

Then I can work out what's wrong if anything and look for a solution.
