  I should clarify.

  I didn't mean that your remarks were irrelevant ad-hominems. I meant
  that after reading that zany article it was very difficult for me to
  restrain myself from unleashing a torrent of irrelevant ridicule at

  more of a heads-up, acknowledging that this lively discussion could
  easily derail in the vicinity of such sensational stuff.
