Why do you interpret this statement as insulting you personally?
It is no such thing; it is an honest expression of opinion on a
point of philolophy--that a certain idea is stupid. I didn't imply
in any way that you had committed such an act, and I didn't even
include your name in the quoted text, because it wasn't relevant.
If you take offense every time I call something stupid just because
I'm replying to your message that brought the subject up, then
you are going to be offended a lot, because I enjoy pointing out
stupid ideas when I see them. It's nothing personal, it's just
what I do.
