I don't think you're being flamed. Larry knows Larry's reasons. You claim to know his reasons. You're going to have to show some really keen analytical and logical skills to convince anyone that you understand Larry better than Larry does.

The only part of the post to which you responded which I can imagine you think is a flame is where there's a very straightforward description of what another party thinks are the failings of your logic in this particular case. That's not a flame.
It might not be sugar-coated and disproportionately polite compared to the statements you've made condemning the Perl6 team, but it in no way questions your honesty, integrity, intelligence, race, class, species, or parentage. There is no attack directed at you in that post at all, and only observations of why your points of discourse are not being accepted by another person. That's about as respectful as someone who thinks you've totally cocked up your argument (my words, not TimToady's) can be in responding to you.
