You are denying a position above. So you oppose the position being denied.
However noone defended the position you denied. So denying a position here
and thus suggesting there are people who defend that position is inaccurate.

And it is disingenuous to inaccurately mention others people's position and
then to try to screen yourself off from reactions by ending with: "Best not
to rake it up again."
