(Inconceivable!) I know well what it means.

I have no objection to someone refuting my arguments with their own arguments. My objection is when someone simply says: "That's stupid, you are dangerous, go away."

Now it may be that what I write is "fundamentally incorrect", and that it "misunderstands the proper role and use of a dbms". If so, I'd like to know why. Without that, all we have are assertions about each other's correctness.
