I do see what you are saying, but since I haven't had cracking to speak of with this glass, I can't say this is an issue. I do work hot. I may burn my colors (pink-pretty much a guarantee), but I haven't seen this cracking due to working hot thing. I'm just saying even BE posts a logical reason for heating glass causing changes in its compatibility.

As it's not a problem I've experienced, I asked annealing questions.
