What? I didn't say anything of the sort. Please don't put your "other

I am not aware of anything of the sort. I'm not a DD and I don't feel
that I insulted myself. In fact none of the other users felt insulted.
I was stating a simple fact. If you feel that the DDs aren't
implementing the best policies for users, then you have the option of
becoming one. I don't see that as a bad thing. It couldn't be much fairer.
