I guess you feel offended that Giovanni implied that you don't "see the
point".  There's just one problem: those were the _exact_ words that
_you_ used to describe yourself.

Giovanni Biscuolo <> replied (after quoting the words above):

and now you respond with indignation: "please consider that I might
'see the point'".

You are contradicting yourself.  First you say that you don't "see the
point", then you are offended that Giovanni implies that you don't "see
the point" and ask him to consider that you _might_ "see the point".
You can't have it both ways.

In my opinion, here you are being far more aggressive in your tone
policing than Giovanni has ever been on this list.


Disinformation flourishes because many people care deeply about injustice
but very few check the facts.  Ask me about <>.
