I was most definately trying to get response.  I am not normally a sarcastic
person.  However, if seaside is going to be the force the communitiy appears
to want it to be, it needs the address some usability issues.  

If it gets no response, at least, I have done what I could to provoke some
thought (Probably useless, but at least I did it).  I don't remember anyone
else doing it.
