That may well be so, regarding the technical issue at hand.

The non-tecnical issue - namely his attempts to threaten Enrico into
submission by abusing his BTS power rather than explaining why he
thinks as he does *is* in my book completely unreasonable.

Saying "this is a bad idea because it would break so-and-so" is fine.
Saying "this is a bad idea because I hold the biggest gun" is not.
