Here, quite possibly, is the problem. Well, A problem, certainly!

If you misinterpret a simple phrase like that, to this degree, then what 
chance is there of having a clear dialogue about, and understanding, 
things that are actually tricky to understand?

Zero, I'd say.

If people are going to have a sane conversation, they must at least 
*listen* to one another, instead of immediately jumping to conclusions 
as soon as anything is said. I'd suggest reading everything at least 
twice, slowly, and making sure you are reading what is actually written, 
before even thinking about formulating a reply.
