22. nope, sorry
I know absolutely nothing about you (or maybe I know you, but I haven't recognized you yet), so I could say "perhaps" you're any number of things, and my statement would be "absolutely correct" as far as it went. However, it is neither logically nor (in my opinion) ethically correct to offer unsupported speculation about someone's ulterior motives in lieu of a response to a substantive argument. It's textbook ad hominem.
