@cryptographic, It's easy to spread hatred but hard to build mutually respecting community. To keep something dynamic in balance we definitely need "Collective" efforts and contribution. Stay blessed.

I really appreciate what you're doin here Bruv!
Keep it up please and Thank You!

Thanks. Appreciate the support!

Sounds true. We have a choice, so collectively let's do good and let's build good.

Do you think I’ve written this to apologize, or to lecture?

More like a lecture and unlike an apology I'd say, although there's no sense of heavy-handedness or 'superiority' :)

Has my argument been effective? Have you identified with it? Maybe even gained a little insight?

Certainly identified with it - ie the point about ad-hominems being distractions from the content/argument itself. All the more so in light of a series of responses to a post written in order to identify and perhaps exclude a certain type of Hiver (according to the author, Quackwatch) using, IMO, some of the (negative) dynamics you mention in your post. It backfired pretty dramatically btw.

Cheers 👍
