Hello Alfred,

are you making fun of me? In your message I am referring to, you say this:

Now when I mention that same text you bring up, as well as similar texts
and ask:

you reply (so you have more experience in this matter?):

I find it difficult to qualify this exchange of messages as anything but
trolling. Would it be "best to use that [first] text", or "neither"?
If you say one thing in one posting, and the opposite thing in the next
one, I do not see how to have a meaningful discussion.

Notice also that this is not a code of conduct, as I already explained
before, since it does contain neither a procedure for reporting harassing
behaviour nor possible sanctions.

Anyway, I think I will not continue adding lines to what ends up resembling
a play of Theatre of the Absurd, and likely just ignore your messages in
the future.
