It depends on whether or not they are making the correct assessments
at the correct times.

I acknowledge it when it happens. It just doesn't happen very often.

Because people become emotional when they disagree, and it is a blow
to their ego to admit that their opinions are no more valid than
anyone else's, so they resort to personal attacks in an attempt to
discredit their interlocutors in the eyes of others.

There really isn't much purpose to insults beyond that, especially
when directed to someone, such as myself, who is refractory to insult.

What about the Paris Fast food one, for example ?

Were you right, or wrong, in your claim that music follows universal
rules?
Are epiceries common, as you claim in your blog, or rare, as you claim
here?
Are Wallace fountains common, or rare?
Is catching a cold aided by cold temperatures, as shown by research, or
not, as claimed by you?

Did you acknowledge these mistakes, or not?
