"Well, no anger in evidence in your response, is there? As the kids say, “you mad, bro?”"

No, there isn't any anger in my response. I'm not angry. You mistake as anger my contempt for idiotic claims. You write idiotic things, and I call them idiotic. That doesn't entail anger, merely intellectual acuity.

"arguments based on the arguer’s implicit assumpion of superiority tend to be unpersuasive. I only suggest that you apply those insights to yourself."

I'm not writing for you -- nothing will ever change your mind. I'm writing for the benefit of others who read our exchange. You can posture all you want. I'm happy to let the readers decide.

"You don’t know me. You don’t know Marley."

I criticize the statements you and Marley have made. And I most certainly DO know those statements -- they're right here.

"And what I see from how you make your arguments is that you don’t seem to know yourself."

More posturing bullshit. Keep on trying to avoid the points I make by attacking me personally -- readers can see through that nonsense.

"Disrespecting others on the basis of unwillingness to see or acknowledge my own fallibility, well that would be Trumpian."

You're trying to make this about me and you personally. I'm talking ideas, and you're talking personalities.
