It wasn't that strange that I mentionned that (it was a test to see if I was 
the only one disagreeing with him)
Yes, I know him too well, and we had an argument on that point (and on many 
others, but I won't publicly extend on it or I'll probably end using not nice 
words) on which he replied that I was the only one arguing against and that 
every one was happy with a — instead of more common characters like / - or 
I now know he was/is a liar. 
That particular issue is so small that I won't start a war to change — in 
whatever, but you have all my support if you wish to do so.
Someone has to tell him that he cannot just change that on a global scale 
without consensus.
(Since I also don't care about names on boundary, I won't change things, but 
he is kind of pissing me off... once more)

ps:I suggest you should split your answers by topics because it's quitte hard 
to read what part repliers are interested in
