Sure, do it. My point was that it seems ineffective to me to argue on
such topics at all. But surely you can do whatever you want. Just like

more often.

Sorry, but that's a bad attitude in my opinion. It's like "No matter
how right or wrong you are, I will not listen to you unless you've

It's clear that you can chose whom to help. But what you actually do
here is argueing on some off topic bytes. Surely, after everyone is
giving opionions about that, it's gonna be the topic. But not a topic
with any conclusions.
