Pretty evil and rogue approach to suggest coming up with some nonsense that 
other more competent people tell you is definitely unrelated, and suggest other 
people should waste their time on trying to reproduce your findings, while you 
can't come up with any sane story why those "patches" or "fixes" you claim to 
see are real.

How about this: my last 3 firmware flashes were in the night between 3:00 and 
3:30, I claim this could mean something worth investigating and now I ask 
other users to get up in the night and reflash their modem firmware to verify 
they see more responsiveness in scrolling screens after that.

*maybe* you're able to get my point. And no, this is NOT about censorship, 
this is about taking care of OM's customer base, protecting them from 
suggestions to clean their device in dishwasher engine and the like.
