Have you ever heard of the term 'invincible ignorance'? It is a term
used in Catholic apologesis to describe the state of unbelievers who
simply refuse to accept any argument intended to convert them. I
suggest that you come to recognize some invincible ignorance here.

Also, you have asserted with some vigor upstream, that any computer
person who doesn't have UPS on all his/her systems is somehow not
really a real computer person.

Personally, I am puzzled about a test of XFS on a system running 
a serious relational database managed using PostgreSQL that does
not have UPS. I infer that there was no UPS because if there were,
pulling the plug would not have caused any harm, or, knowing that
there was a UPS the testers would have not pulled the plug because
it would have been a silly 'test'. 

Your original post in this thread addressed a quite disfunctional
attitude of OP, and IMHO, was correct but somewhat harshly worded.
In truth, he simply cannot have everything he wants all at the 
same time. You should have left it at that, IMHO. 

I suggest that you try to learn to live with the fact that there
is a vast unwashed mass of invincibly ignorant people who call
themselves computer experts. Unless you relish this heated 
controversy, you should limit your recommendation of XFS to
shops that take for granted the necessity of having UPS first.
