Yes, you are about the fourth or fifth person who isn't understanding me 
- therefore, I must be doing something wrong, failing to be clear in some 
vital way that I just can't see.  So, without meaning to be rude, I feel 
it is time for me to withdraw from this conversation.  I don't seem to be 
able to say things clearly enough.

more trouble with communicating.  Maybe I need to get some sleep or 
something...
