It is not a degrade as such. He gave a reason for -1 and I provided a
solution that would solve the problem he had with it. He proposed another
problem and I have provided a solution to that. If he has any more issue
with it then we will continue this dance. If it gets to the point that
either I give up or the only reasons remaining are religious then we stop.
If the only reasons are religious then they are effectively "no
explanation". I have been slammed a number of times in the past for using
purely religious arguments - as a consequence I now only argue if there is
some logic behind it ;) "no explanation" is covered by Apache rules.

As I said above it is neither ignored or overruled.
