^Is it necessary to go ad hominem? You said one sentence, and I said three short sentences in reply -- hardly "picking apart." You then chose to continue the discussion, and I simply responded in kind. At least, I thought it was a normal, civil discussion, but you seem to assume it's something more confrontational, and I have no interest in continuing it in that case.
I'm not trying to be confrontational. I'm currently amused
, and previously have been slightly annoyed
at this conversation. I made a one-off comment, and you responded, but in such a way that you seemed (to me) intent on disproving
what I'd said. That naturally put me a little on the defensive. We've gone in enough circles that I'm beyond that emotion now, and I simply find the whole thing laughable.
As ever, you take yourself too seriously, IMHO.
