Whimsical exaggeration, when it occurs in the
contest of a disagreement, can easily be percieved
by the one disagreed with as an unfair criticism
of something perse didn't say.

I suggest we all make an point of avoiding exaggeration
in discussions where there is a disagreement or argument going on.
