Yes, you aren't getting it (on at least two counts, it appears). Yes, I understood your response and even responded to it. I linked to where I explain why I consider the alternative above to be unacceptable (it makes a simple mistake hopelessly confusing).
I wasn't particularly terse in my explanations so I won't rehash them further (I doubt I'd be successful in conveying the points to you based on how completely I've failed so far). Maybe some other time we'll be closer to the same "wavelength".
