The only thing that could be irrational about it is if you were to say 
"It does not work for me now so how can it work for anyone, ever?"

I have not seen any of you guys taking that attitude but some do.

question in the first place.  I have not come across any serious 
blockers and was curious what made it blockers for some of you.
