  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.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
