To approach this from a constructive perspective: rather than claiming
someone to be "sick", state your opinion of the symptoms, and debate

But more importantly, and taking precedence: it's irrelevant to the
discussion.  Whether or not you believe someone to be "sick" because
they hold a particular viewpoint---which I find to be a terrible
mistake---doesn't matter to the topic at hand.  Consequently, raising it
could only be interpreted as an insult, since it can do nothing to
further a constructive debate.

So as a moderator, I'm asking that you please stop.
