Quoting Roy out of context.

Here's what you said: "Quoting Roy out of context is not a Hail Mary you can
just throw out there when someone disagrees with you."

Then you should've said "quoting it as if it is policy". Because you see:
   "quoting it as if it is policy" != "Quoting Roy out of context"

Precision of language in contentious online discussions is of paramount

This time I'll chalk up our misunderstanding to your sloppy use of language
in that particular sentence.

Which brings us back to what you actually wanted to say, which is: "quoting it
as if it is policy". That was NOT my intent. My intent was to *highlight* what
I took as a very insightful statement made in discussion extremely similar
to the one we're having here 3 years after the original discussion.

Roy's statement changed the way I think about ASF and IPMC. That was all I
was trying to communicate.
