well, its the end effect that count, and aj's word could be interpreted as :

  you are no DD, so your opinion doesn't count, and you should not give
  counterarguments to a DD.

This is how i read it.

I believe is more that the culture and structure of a given language make
the speakers of said language more sensible to certain ways of turning the
