The problem is, to do this properly I'd have to go and review a good dozen or so of your games where you've used the opening, and see the different variations you're using against the various responses and strategies the opponents can use.
It's too big of a job.
I know you don't like them, but have you considered using a computer program for analysis? Something like Rybka could be helpful for immediately finding the flaws and weaknesses in an opening, which can really help with refining it. Sorry I haven't been of more help.
I would like to play out a couple of games with you, and it will definitely help me get a feel for the opening, but I'm well out of practice so I'll make no promises about great play on my side. I'll have the aim of not trying to refute the opening outright, but just by playing very standard textbook chess, developing quickly, castling, and playing positionally, because I think that's where the opening will struggle the most to make an impact.
Set the games up when you're ready and we'll give it a go.
