Looks like a perfectly justified response to me. I don't see how that
could be classified as 'provocation' or 'troll', because in no sense
did it encourage more discussion - it was quite clearly a statement
that he was being ignored because he was just trying to start an
argument. I suppose you could claim it was a 'put-down', but I claim
it is a factually accurate description of the parent mail and I
challenge anybody to prove otherwise.

I can see nothing in this mail that could be even remotely like
that. Explain your claim.

And again.

A restatement of what other people had previously said, and I still
see no way you can classify this as "little more than provocations,
put-downs, and trolls".

Insults? WTF? Precise quoting and explanations please, I see none here.
