Well, I look at it another way: my point is that your post, as written, shouldn’t be taken seriously — because, as worded, it’s merely incorrect. It starts off ludicrously wrong; I saw no reason to think it gets any better; I find what you note here to be a perfectly sufficient ‘counterargument’: how can I improve on the writer pointing out that, no, it doesn’t literally mean what it stated?

And now you're desperately trying to steer everything away from the one thing you should have done if I was actually wrong. were. You were, actually, wrong.
