23. any reader can verify that you simply ignored my points

Moreover, any reader can go back to a recent thread and see how this sort of argument tends to play out.

Back in post #50 of Bill Bored's thread, I pointed out that you had made an error of over one million votes. You replied, in pertinent part, "You are a disingenuous nitpicker who needs to take an algebra class" -- and then simply repeated your argument, error and all. In post #52, I pointed out that no algebra was necessary to see your response. In post #55, you got so personal that the mods deleted your post. Finally, in post #57, you worked up to: "You were right.... I was correct up until step 6...." (Hey, thanks for manning up.)

So, at this point it seems reasonable to demand that you reply to my points, instead of restating all sorts of other reasons why you think I'm wrong, or impugning my motivations for daring to contradict you, or any of the other evasive maneuvers you've employed in the last two weeks or so. If you don't reply to my points, a plausible inference would be that you can't rebut them.

ETA: By the way, I responded to your points in #14 even though it wasn't responsive to my points. So, any attentive reader can confirm that I'm doing most of the work.
