Minimally, at best.

"No I'm not," is, I suppose, criticizing the content, yes, but not in  
a constructive, or useful way. If you can't do this, then just don't  

"That's not a point, that's a conditional conjecture." Structural  
argument. Again, completely unhelpful to anyone. See above.

"Who don't?" Your pedantry is becoming quite grating. If something is  
unclear, it's fine to point it out, but then you could go on after  
making a logical assumption about what he meant.

I don't think I'm the only person on this list who is more than a  
little annoyed by your antics as of late. I have no problem with your  
ideas, and I think many of them are useful. However, you seem to be  
very resistant to debating things with others, which is the entire  
point of this list. If everyone on this list behaved the way you do,  
we would be spewing "No I don't"s "Yes you do"s at each other until we  
were blue in the face.

Disgruntledly yours,
