is that you are admitting you have poor judgment, "it seems to me."

Mike, When I say "I think this is what Mario meant..." then I am speaking for no one but myself. I am expressing my own opinion of what I thought Mario meant.

Having said that, when you issue the imperative: "Let Mario speak for himself", then you are making a command that attempts to direct what someone other than yourself says. Isn't that similar to what you are objecting to in the first place?

Just playing by your rules for a moment, it seems
one can hide behind the idea that "it is just my opinion" and then spew non sequiturs and fallacies of all kinds from midnight to midnight.
There is no reason to drag Mario's name into this when the question was whether Mario had read a freely available book written by the person he was ridiculing. You didn't answer it. He didn't answer it. You explain what you think his thoughts were.

By the way, do you really still respect Aurino? Maybe you'll enjoy this:
