It wasn't an attack: it was an observation, one that you have amply illustrated,
Whatever you call it, it was a personal attack, an ad hominem.
You didn't adress the argumenst but you attacked the person.
What is here not to understand, mate?
I'm not your mate, and I do what I wish.
You are very funny here! You are telling me not to call you mate, BUT
you can do whatever you wish?????
Don't you see the absurdity in this?
I will call you mate, whenever I want to. Caprice, mate?
