Ah, not a lisper, ehh? (please, don't reply, no one cares)

Okay, let me break it down in a little bit flatter mode:

Prior: silly comment made
Prior: such comments caused by certain (detrimental) thinking
Conclusion: The silly comments made are most likely the result of a
certain state of thinking. Since this kind of thinking hurts the
quality of the discussion, it should be avoided.

And, many kilobytes later, the discussion had still gone nowhere.
