No, these attributes weren't addressed to you.
If you check back, you'll see that they were addressed to nobody directly anyway -- it was just a description of a mental mechanism within myself.

Now, as to my "not understanding" arguments and analogies before criticizing them, I think that you may misunderstand my disagreement with lack of understanding--with the presumption being that anyone who would argue with you wouldn't do so if they "understood" your points. This presupposes that your points are flawless, a standard that is very high, indeed.
Whatever the case, we have moved from arguing about standards and ways of knowing to arguing small things. I do not think much stands to be accomplished if one were to extend the trend. As much as I enjoy rhetorical devices, I would prefer a discussion based on the merits. But no such agreement can be reached here.
