Sorry, it took me a very long and painful time to understand the meaning
of that sentences: I'm in danger thinking too much. So if someone tells
me that I'm reducing somthing too much, it's mostly his fault, that he
doesn't think enough, or my fault, that I didn't make it simple enough.

Try to understand the content before you call it too simple!


P.S.: I won't say that any of your feelings are wrong or bad. But to
deal with them they must be carefully sorted. In fact you are speaking
about your feelings and use the language of a scientific discussion.
Both should be considered in separate discussions. I know that is nearly
impossible, but it's very helpful to try it in such discussions.
