Provided below are some definitions and references to help you sort
out the big, bad words:

disagreement:  a failure or refusal to agree.  In other words, the
opposite of agree, which is a shorter word that may be easier to
understand.  http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=disagreement

ignorance:  a word whose root is very close to what I tend to do to
people who are unhelpful and provide nothing constructive to
conversations.  http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=ignorance

previous:  the one before.  http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=previous

assertion:  claim.  http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=assertion

evidence:  what David has failed to provide.

Maybe you're right and my disagreement (definition above) is because I
didn't understand his claims.  If that's the case, feel free to help
me understand why he's right, and I will happily agree with you.

I understood.  I just thought it a misguided way to proceed.

How many people do you know?  Just to establish a baseline here.

I'd like to thank you for this non-constructive criticism
(http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=criticism).  Feel free to
answer the overarching questions, such as ***what information should
be in the status tables*** in another post.
