That too is ad hominem, in that it suggests I'm saying what I'm saying for a personal reason.
No, I didn't suggest that you were saying anything for a personal reason. I have zero idea why you, or anybody else, for that matter, say anything, and I'm not in the business of trying to divine your intentions.

I already don't use them.
