Its like you wanted to go cycling and happened to find that nice  
bathtub in a store. You start out and find it a bit on the heavy side,  
plus it hardly moves when you push it. Now you go back to the store  
and complain that the bathtub must be broken. You suggest a thorough  
redesign and insist to add some wheels, and maybe a parachute while  
they're at it - you may wish to cycle close to a cliff.

I dare say you wouldn't expect to get a reasonable answer in that  
bathtub store. I was actually reluctant to post a reply here as I'm  
afraid this just feeds a troll.
