No, I was just trying to say that the discussion had been respectful
and polite (even when all of us have different ideas) until you
started setting this aggressive tone. Of course you can say whatever
you want, I'm not trying to give any lessons on netiquette or
political correction, but if all the reasons you're gonna provide is
that it is your opinion and thus perfect, and you think don't even
have to explain it, just don't expect me to take you seriously. You
can be as rude as you want, insult as much as you want, and that won't
make you have reason. Whenever someone has to resort to insults to
support their position their credibility lowers. Now, as it is
perfectly obvious, you're free to do what you want.
