That wasn't for the fun on insulting people.  I've been treated as a
burden in a situation where I only wanted to report some bug.  I
couldn't understand more colleagues saying that they wouldn't report bug
as it all seems pretty useless.

I'm willing to agree on that.  I'm a simple user trying to help.

Well, I wasn't going to try to solve that one problem in fact, I just
got to this point and was amazed to see that, however you protect \par
from being expanded, it still breaks the argument parsing.

You are right, I was impolite and I am sorry for that.
