I can only think of two interpretations: I don't like you, therefore I think your arguments are wrong. or I don't like your conclusion, therefore I think your arguments are wrong. Both make for inappropriately fallacious and prejudiced reasoning. Also, given the degree of hyperbole from developers on -devel, I don't think it's fair to take cries of "plagiarism" as being anything particularly out of line.
