  Then just do it, do not defend yourself when others do not like it.  Stick
  to the point.  People who stick to the point learn a lot here, and fast.

  You should perhaps realize that humility and strong statements are not
  typically regarded as internally consistent.  That you chose to respond
  /only/ to the rejection of your purported humility also suggests otherwise.

  Thanks for the information.  I doubt that I shall find occasion to use it.
