The problems did not develop over time.  They were present from the
beginning.  They've actually _subsided_ over time, but we're talking about
a _long_ time. (2 years)

I just don't want to bother with an analysis.  I know I don't want to use
it again, and I don't see people lining up for the opportunity either.<g>
The analysis wouldn't have any bearing on anyone else's soil experiences,
so why bother?
