This is a common tactic by someone who disagrees with you but cannot pierce
your arguments and/or convince you of your wrongness. The goal is to get the
list to perceive you as "abusive" (by some arbitrary definition of abusive)
and hence this person "wins" by removing your ability to debate.

My advice is to ignore it and them. 

Lately, I've been trying to convince people that convincing people of things is
futile...but for some reason that hasn't been successful. :)

Nasrudin was sitting on a river bank when someone shouted to him
from the opposite side: "Hey! how do I get across?"

"You -are- across!" Nasrudin shouted back.
