No, it doesn't imply that. And if you cannot follow, don't put words
into my mouth.
There are simple facts which are NOT mutual exclusive: "no problems",
"problems exist", "there are no problems for me". If you try to use the
last one to support the first and you don't see a problem there even now
then I doubt I can help you with understanding.
