11. Can't help noticing how careful you were...

... in your remarks to avoid actually addressing the content of his editorial.

Is there some reason for that? I think there is. I think it's because it's much easier to slap a label on someone and use it as a handy means of dismissing anything they may have to offer than it is to construct your own reasoned analysis/argumentation specifically answering what that person has to say.

Sadly, an all too often tactic used by some here for the obvious purpose of stifling meaningful discussion.
