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.
