No worries, seems like a reasonable reason to have a go at this

As a PA hacker, I'd be interested to know what apps were causing you
problems when you used PA so that we could help make them better for
other users who do want to use PA. If you could provide any details or
debug info, that would be great.

No need to apologise for that, I think it was fine :)
