I am not one of the experts, I am only a user of the software trying to 
tell you how we use it and trying to assure you that it works.

I was just trying to point out to you in a light-hearted way that you 
are getting the highest level of expertise available.

Everyone is being polite and respectful
You are getting advice and not abuse.
The fact that you do not like the advice and consider it abusive that 
you keep getting told that your approach is fraught with problems, does 
not make it abuse..
