        The first part of the quoted text is fact, not opinion. The
 second part _is_ personal opinion; though. You did not find the reduced

        You are entitled to your opinion. I certainly do not cater to
 your point of view, thankfully. If you find that opinions that reducing

 insulting, then hey, *I* think you have a thin skin, and you might have
 to live with people expressing such opinions.
