Nowhere have I ever stated that you said or implied that there were no problems in the gulf. What I have said is that you have overly downplayed those problems and done so beyond merely questioning or disputing the most extreme theories. Likewise, I have said that, while I understand a desire to look for the positive, you have also grasped at too many positives which are not borne out by closer scrutiny and unbiased reports.
Trust me, I am not reading what I want to see. I am reading what I don't want to see.
