An alternate explanation is that people are tired of going through every
sentence of every post about this, word by word, and trying to respond
in a way that cannot possibly be misconstrued.

I myself have neither the time nor motivation to respond to every single
message on this subject; it's demotivating.  I suspect most of the posters
have already made up their minds, in any case.
