||Would you please, please, please stop it with the line-by line rebuttal, koochee NAWL? It's rude. It is the written equivalent of interrupting someone who is speaking. It betrays a lack of original thought, and is entirely reactionary. It often goes beyond the "fair use" provision of copyright law.
In short, line-by-line rebuttal makes you look naïve, thickheaded, disrespectful, and ultimately uninteresting.
It's pretty clear at this point that what you really need to do is talk about your father, but you'll progress much faster if you just let your own words flow, rather than cling to, repeat, and fuss over those sacred/hated snippets of Mr. elenchos's comments. You'll never learn to be yourself if you insist on being intertwined with him like that.
