Sure it's efficient. It avoids wasting time like we are doing right  
now, not sure if you noticed. If Michael had replied without pounding  
his chest so much, maybe we'd get somewhere with this buffer size  
issue. Say, what about my previous message: "your liberalism cost you  
a decoder..." --> does this seem efficient to you?

Wait, so now someone's politeness is inversely related to how much  
they've contributed to a project? Are you purposely misunderstanding,  
or what? It makes sense, no? "Guy who's been around for a while is  
polite to new guy, so new guy will contribute his code and will  
become another guy who's been around, who will in turn be polite to  
another new guy..."

If you seriously believe that being rude and elitist toward newcomers  
is "the way to go", then you're in hardly any position to give me  
advice as to "where I should go."
