I was not commenting on this.
Point taken, your opinion is valued. As are others' opinions.

It is this which I take offense to:

Bullshit. Yes, you did. When you personally attacked the member
  just for offering his help and opinion. The strongest word used
  was 'nonsense', a word often used around here, including by you.
What makes his opinion so invalid or any less than yours?
You are both professionals with helpful knowledge.

So as we can now see in plain view, you have a history with this
  member and you just let it all spill out right here for no good reason.

Credibility? Holy fuck. This list is about opinions, and helping others.
Whoever can help does so. Readers know to take everything said with a
  grain of salt, no implied warranty. If it helps, great.
This crap does not.
