| Accusing someone of having a "dysfunctional brain" isn't belittling them?

  You might as well admit that you belittle people, too, and stop
  being so hypocritical about it.  If you have an argument, it's one
  of different styles or different quantities, not about the concept.

  What I really don't understand is why you can "bear" just looking
  for "key sentences" and base your conclusions on that.  Unless, of
  course, you really _want_ to remain a prejudicial hateful bigot.
  Another option is to relieve yourself of reading my articles at all.
  I'm against kill-files as a policy, but I would much prefer it if I
  knew that what I wrote would not benefit you, either, because you
  have shown that you can't even "bear" to credit me when it does.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
