Exactly, and 2 negatives, like "isn't not" cancel each other out so you
get  "alcohol is not a poison and alcohol is a poison" which is gibberish
just like I said.

Cannot comment, don't know what ASCII symbols "free will" mean.

It would mean that I did not engage in name calling. What I actually said
was that ASCII symbols with zero informational content ( like X is Y and X
is not Y) is just blather, you're the one who equated blather with ad
hominem; apparently you identify with blather and feel that a attack on
blather is a attack on you personally.
