You are amazingly certain you know what I'm thinking. It's amazing because you have so little information about me based on this tiny discussion and because you're sure enough that you can write off my direct statements as lies because they're inconsistent with what you know is going on in my head.
You really ought to follow my example and assume you don't know what other people are thinking rather than assume something that makes them jerks.
So there's no way I can carry on an argument with you about what I'm thinking, and it's off-topic anyway, but for the record, I am going to make these statements:
I am not engaging in rhetorical tricks and have no reason to because I am not trying to win a debate. I am only trying to expose readers of LWN to perspectives or analyses some of them may not be aware of.
At least that's what I was doing before you diverted the conversation into a discussion about me and about the conversation itself.
