I was talking to you (Brent), and I was pointing out that Stathis gave 
an example of the kind of thing that it would be helpful if you said it, 
but you responded by complaining that he was incorrectly saying 
something you never said. He wasn't.

It looked to me as if you'd not realised that he was giving an example, 
rather than quoting you, and reacted accordingly.

I then pointed out that this is a problem when trying to have a 
conversation that makes any sense at all.
