An 'argumentation' like the above is simply a killer phrase that ends
OTOH, absence of valid argumentation doesn't necessarily mean that your
statement has to be wrong.
I'm always willing to learn. Since you've also tried to correct me about
constructive and polite behaviour - might I suggest that you add a few
words about what is right in your opinion, when telling folks they are
wrong? This would add to both, I guess.
