I believe that is the original version of the other reply from chromatic in that thread. I was very careful to not mention it (like I didn't mention any of the many other bad examples in that thread). Plenty of bad ideas in evidence over there. But thanks for spreading some small part of it around so we can experience the badness all over again.
I only picked out one example so I could show how even the best of that thread was not really that helpful (from what I could tell) and came so close to being unhelpful.
There were only two replies that struck me as fairly positive in what I scanned of that thread (which was probably most of it). I didn't remember the author of the other one and didn't feel like mucking through it again searching. When I saw that even chromatic had decided that his other reply was too ugly to stand, I double checked that I had been very specific about just the one reply.
But, yeah, even the authors who managed to post something somewhat reasonable mostly also ended up stooping rather low as well. More evidence that piling on to respond to insults just doesn't work out very well in practice in this medium / environment.
