I simply don't believe you. I don't believe the difference can be 100%. I certainly don't believe it can be more. And I don't believe you can even measure what difference there is. And even if I did believe all that, I don't believe it is anything but a bug in your software.

So I 100% don't believe you. However, I am willing to be persuaded by proof.
