Mr. D, in comments:
…so you affirm dissing some views on the grounds that they defy credulity, and then you diss my point of view on the grounds that dissing other people’s points of view is considered rude.
I think we are done here.
Let’s quit while we are ahead.

Uh, nooooo. I’m dissing your point of view on the grounds that misrepresenting other people’s points of view is rude, dishonest, and logically invalid.
And while I’m at it, taking your ball and bat and going home by closing comments when things hadn’t even begun to get nasty, especially not by Internet standards is, frankly, cowardly.
Further, while some of my linguistic opponents here would disagree with me as to whether or not “diss” is a real word, never mind an actual verb, I’m sure most of them would agree that it’s not a word you should ever use.
That is all.
