This is the kind of argument you provide? I'll tell you a little
secret about dead giveaways; real twits pick on the person when
running out of good arguments. As to my self-proclamation of HCD and
"looking for the manual", here's a little explanation even you might
HCD includes a lot of stuff, it is a community and a field in motion;
new stuff emerge, old stuff gets revised, ancient progroms remain or
get dropped al together. As such, we all know there is no manual. As
such, there are no definite answers. As such, I was mocking your
requirements for doing HCD. As such, I was defining our different
views on this ACD thing.
Get it? I wasn't *really* looking for the manual, you see, I was
saying that to prove the somewhat ironic point that in a field of so
much fuzz you claim to have the textbook answer, when, as we all know,
there is no such textbook. See? Where's the textbook, but there is no
textbook! Oh, the irony ...

I don't, and neither have I said I do.

You know, this nitpick of yours just proves to me the absolute
silliness of the ACD vs. HCD discussion. I'm sorry that my
polarisation doesn't match yours. Let's just leave it at that.
