Then why are you so seemingly bothered about peoples' criticisms:
"But really, what's wrong with it? All the melodrama, talking about" ..
 people getting "so heated and angry" ..
 " - but what's actually wrong with it, that makes" .. 
 "such a small thing" .. 
 "a problem for you?"

You're expending resources to try to persuade people that there's no issue 
here. Yet the very fact that you've chosen this topic to get involved in, 
would normally indicate that you do attach some importance to it. So why is 
it important to you that people regard [init misspelled as rgeard (sic!)] 
this issue - and its context (that you side-stepped in an earlier reply) - 
as not important?

Why are you bothered to be bothered? Why not just keep calm and carry on and 
accept what you're getting?
