No, this is about the code level, not about you, your person or any of your character's or body's qualities or characteristics. I didn't even say that your work was BS. Additionally, please note the subjunctive used in my wording.

Regrettably, ranting on this list seems to be the only way to get any response from you, which is a shame. I'd love to know the rationale behind these changes to the volume mechanism to see the benefits for both the developer and the user in contrast to the existing 2.0 implementation.
So far, I only see bloat and missing functionality, which is typically what you try to avoid and to remove wherever possible, so obviously I don't understand your work.

Thanks for coming back to me,
