I would make sure that it is more than just semantics that you
disagree about.  I was always suspected that he agrees with you
point other than the semantics, and thus ignores it because the
only point in contention is the semantic point.  Most people do
not care to argue against a point they agree with. :)

So hopefully this question can clear everything up for Andrew:
Daniel, do you believe that anything that frustrates the players, but
not enough to make them leave, is automatically a good thing?

  [ ] Yes
  [ ] No
