You are arguing against ludicrous and bogus arguments you have imputed to me, but which I have not expressed, implied, or made it possible to infer in the first place. _That_ was what was wrong, not your "argument". I have extremely low tolerance for people who play rhetorical games where the goal is to embarrass someone instead of actually making a point, and if you engage in gratuitous fault-finding, too, there is no good-will left on my end at all. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
