I do not believe anyone was insulting to you. Your claims were prima
facie implausible, so you should expect some tough questions and it is
surely your duty to respond to those questions. If my words looked
insulting, I apologise and ask you to treat my questions as tough, but

I must give you a word of advice, too. If you are genuine and sincere,
it might be in your interest NOT to withdraw with protests about being
offended, as soon as some questions are asked of you.

Why? Because in my experience this kind of behavior (protesting
innocence and sincerity, complaining at the offensive nature of the
questions, and then departing without giving any answers) is PRECISELY
the kind of behavior exhibited by a person who is a fake.

I do not accuse you of being a fake. Sadly, however, we do not yet have
any evidence that you know what you are talking about - so please help
us to understand by giving us some evidence that can convince us that
you do understand the AGI field and have actually built an AGI.
