It shows quite a lack of respect to start such a discussion.
I am completely willing to have a cordial debate with anyone and start off giving them respect. But that does not mean they will always deserve to retain that respect, completely irrespective of their repeated conduct and demeanor.
For an example, try reading through the posts ftx made on the "increase t3 mex cost" balance post. (Even just the ones that haven't been deleted.)
After a certain number of attempts at a civil discussion, you realize it is pointless to keep trying.
