Huh? I don't see what prompted this personal attack. I was replying to a 
suggestion that we add Yet Another Payment System with a guess that the 
Foundation won't do so because it's a huge hassle to simultaneously 
support a lot of payment systems, and there's little benefit from doing 
so, and that's why similar suggestions in the past haven't been 
accepted. How is that "trolling"?
