Perhaps you could quote the advice that you find absurd, and explain how you 
interpret the quoted text?

My previous experience with you is that you immediately called me "insane" (and 
worse) for suggesting a solution that could work in principle and did work in 
practice for the problem posed in that thread; I think you resorted to such 
characterizations because you had stated that it was impossible.

So until you get a bit more concrete I'm interpreting your characterization 
(about what?) as just confirming & uphelding the impression you made back then.

Cheers & hth.,
