You pointed out to me that my initial idea was not the right one
by formulating it as a rhetorical question. Which is a terribly
unforgiving way to point out someone made a mistake.

You didn't even bother to notice my further corrected findings.

I _admitted_ I was wrong and _suggested_ you should not use
rhetorical questions to point out peoples mistakes.

And now you answer with this! Some cheek!
