I appreciate your criticism - and I mean that sincerely. I had to think about it - no easy task - and you're absolutely right that I did try to use a title that would attract attention - "clickbait". Sure, I could argue otherwise, but to do so would be disingenuous and would make my motives seem mercenary.

So as much as I want to play the diva and refuse, you're right. Besides, a proper and accurate rebuke - not only of form and presentation, but also of mindset - is something to be valued.

Again, thank you. I will change it today.
