How did you read what I wrote and say what you said?  I've read it  
several times and I can't get from point A to point B.  Did you do a  
major typo or something?

I said it is valid.  After saying you came to the same conclusion, you  
then said "logically it can't work".  Your statement not only  
contradicts what I said, but contradicts the fact is has and does work.

Let me be clear: IT IS NOT FORBIDDEN.  IT WORKS FINE.
