Yes, I had already figured it out

There may be something in it - 
we here must still have some fighting trim left 
(you coke-drinking, couch-potato-lying decadents... ;-))

Seriously, though, my problem with this discussion was
that you seemingly were not able to, or do not want to,
understandand the GREAT difference between one-way missions 
and suicide missions. Only the latter are "kamikaze";
the former are simply cosmic-distance relocations -
I do not see any suicidal elements in them.
So budling both types of missions under "one-way" heading
and then discussing them together as if both were same-type
suicidal missions (as you do in your Progress Report) 
really infuriates me, as simply unfair arguing practice...
