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
ignorance: a word whose root is very close to what I tend to do to
people who are unhelpful and provide nothing constructive to
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.
