That could be a part of your problem:  This is real life.  This isn't a
video game, you're dealing with real people.

I submit to you that we don't.  We need intelligent, reasonable people
who are willing to speak their case at full and provide confirmable
details if they have a problem.  The method you seem to have picked
instead is to accuse people of this and that in opinion wrapped in a
metaphor, then demanding that be fixed.  Perhaps if what you were trying
to accomplish didn't seem like a non-sequitor to reasonably intelligent,
rational people, you might get farther.
