Of course. But that's not what his email says at all, and so your
reply completely fails to address any points whatsoever of his
message. Which you actually quoted in the process!

Go back and read it again. His idea is symmetric, sensible and reasoned.

Even if you aren't, you do seem to be working on a fundamental
assumption that anyone from en:wp is fundamentally out to cause you
problems. This is not in fact the case. Please make an attempt to
assume better faith.
