Wrong. Your responce was clearly the sign of someone who was unwilling
to listen to someone who thought about a question you asked, and then
responded with what he/she thought was a reasonably good answer.

Hmmmmmm....Let's see. Writing style matches. Flat out assertion in
the first one word sentence is exactly the same. No suggestion of
"it seems to me" or "I don't think" in the above paragraph. And even
used a lot of assertions from which there can be no discussion.

Looks like a firm rebuttle to me. And if it walks like a duck and
quacks like a duck...well, it's probably not a duck-billed platypus.

Who notes that if the answer seems illogical, perhaps you should take
some time to understand what the person is saying before dismissing
them out of hand.
