Because with a comment like that, my impression would be that he was
aiming to deliberately yank my chain: and why should I put up with that?
To use that as an example, and to simultaneously lose sight of the "you
know, I'm kind of being a jerk here, and why should do me a favor by
making a certification if I'm being a jerk to him?" factor, is to reduce
humanity to automation. It implicitly says, "you must do this, because
to be otherwise is illogical."
I demand logic in technical matters. In social matters, I embrace my
humanity, which is to say my right to be inconsistent. I heartily
recommend this course of living to everyone.
