If you really believed that, you would not have disingenuously trimmed context from my earlier post by removing the text which directly addressed the argument you then made.

No, you didn't. What you and Warner HAVE demonstrated is that you _chose_ the wrong time coordinate system for your systems/applications. Instead of using TAI, which doesn't have leap seconds, you chose to use UTC, which does. You're now arguing that the single differentiating factor between UTC and TAI should be removed to resolve issues cause by your poor choice. You've offered nothing in the way of rational argument as to why that should happen, except that it would be convenient for YOU. That is not rational.

This again? I predict Godwin's law will shortly need to be invoked.
