We have been over this before. They are diverting only for those unable to maintain mental focus on logical content. If you feel insulted why not simply ignore the putative insults? Why falsely claim insults that are not part of the argument are ad hominem? Why not follow the advice I gave: focus on logic /both/ when sending /and/ receiving?
