You are assuming that I am a coder. :)

I tried to say that I wasn't necessarily clumping you together with the
LFSers. But you haven't convinced me of the valuable time spent trying to
build complicated software in leiu of good packages made by people who spend
the time required to do it right (either they're paid, ala Red Hat, or
they're highly involved with the software themselves, ala Debian. Or both).

That is definitely true.
