I see it more as a statement of fact rather than an insult.

You and responders to you have produced over 500 messages going round
in circles while you keep repeating the same *belief*, that it is
impossible for computers to ever understand anything. Your thought
experiments and strawmen arguments get wilder and wilder as you
desperately try to repeat the same *belief* using different words.
Which in turn causes more confusion as it appears that you might be
saying something different, when you're not.

Stathis (and others) arguments have certainly clarified the situation
so that working towards creating human level (and greater)
intelligence in computers appears a worthwhile objective. For that we
should thank him.
