You seem to be having problems retaining context in your messages:

"Even these few examples are of course fraught with difficulty."

I did not explicitly mention your point, but it was what I was aluding to. It 
was rather tangential to my point, so I omitted a discussion of it. Those 
suggestions were mere examples also.

Because I have really awful bandwidth and find it difficult to review even 
moderately sized packages (getting better bandwidth involves moving house).

Regardless, I find your stance of "ignore all my suggestions then question my 
competence and trustworthiness" to be rather unpleasant. If you don't have 
anything worthwhile to add (and this message doesn't), don't bother.
