Unless you stop trolling and start showing that you are knowledgeable about this topic, then I don't see why I should waste more time discussing this issue with you.
Why is disagreement on this forum so often treated with such hostility? That wasn't "trolling," that was a reasonable response.
I don't think it is specific to this forum. Many on-line forums seem to encourage disagreements (I am thinking about political ones here, not resource scarcity ones) but after ralfy went after the OP for just pointing out basic factual information related to production rates, it did seem to become more obvious what was going on.
