Do you mean something like (for example):

  "I've seen hypocrisy in my life, but this ridiculous
   combination sure takes the prize!"

?

I don't have any doubt you're tired with all this stuff...
however it would probaly have been way quicker instead of
writing a lot of general words just pointing out (I mean *cite*)
what is the passage of mines that you think was beyond the
acceptable limit.

Tone down what ? Do you mean my sarcastic message ?
I'm sorry, but if you expect me to:

1- Swallow without thinking any argument in a technical
   discussion
2- Swallow insults received for no reason

then I've to inform you that this is not going to happen
anytime soon. No matter who is the author of the dubious
argument, no matter who is the author of the insult.

If turning off your brain and your self respect is your
definition of peace and harmony, then please do so and be
happy with it; but this is not my philosophy.

If I appear silent it's probably because I decided that
the counterpart is not even worth a direct reply; it doesn't
mean I swallowed anything. When I've to acknowledge an error
of mines, I say that quite clearly (and quite happily also).
