insulted me, by actually refusing to discuss most of my points- you merely kept parroting on about how you already addressed that, and told me to read the thread. I said I had
read the thread, and that I did not feel you had addressed any of this issues adequately, and asked that if you really felt you had addressed any of those issues already, to provide proof- link to and requote them. You did not do that, and instead continued to insist on saying "I already addressed this". I asked you politely to stop doing that, and yet you kept doing it. By insisting on telling me that to re-read the thread after saying I did not feel you had addressed anything sufficiently in the past, you insinuated that I am either a liar, incompetent, stupid, or not worth addressing: all of those are insulting. You have been insufferably rude to me in this discussion, and I have only continued to attempt to get a civil discussion out of you because I believe there is an actual sliver of hope that you might be made to understand how you are being rude and to stop it.
So again, go back to this
post of yours*, and in every instance where you said "I already addressed this" replace it with one of the following:
1. A link to those prior arguments that addresses them, with a quote of the specific part you feel is relevant.
2. An apology for insinuating that I am a liar.
3. A statement admitting you are not actually interested in discussing anything with me.
Truthfully, I would like an apology for the rude off handed way you dismissed my arguments regardless, but if you provide the first I will be content to be willing to continue attempting to discuss with you, because then I can tell you why I did not think those re-linked and quoted sections are sufficient. Statements of "I already dealt with this" are not useful for conducting discussion, especially when, when asked for proof of that, you refuse to provide it
. It is impossible to discuss something with someone who refuses to discuss it with you.
* You had been doing it for several pages, but I feel that post is a good starting point, especially since it is immediately following this
post of mine, with this relevant quote:
