RE: Flightless pterosaur question:

1. It was not my intention to insult you.

2. I didn't say you claim others are wrong.  I remarked "as if," which implied 
a tendency that could be construed as saying others are wrong. This is in 
connection with your repeated attempts to claim that the methods you use are 
superior to the methods other have (descreening, really?) for determining 
features in a pixellated photo. Your claim is that when others try your method, 
they will "see it," and thus agree with you.  You then dismiss those who do 
not, "as if they were wrong."

3. Your conclusions are not as interesting to me, and therefore matter less, 
than your methods.  I am, I think, trying to make this an argument about 
methodology, and always have, rather than an argument about personality, which 
it tends to become conflated with as some people become defensive (so many 
generalizations in that sentence...).
