Characterizing a factual correction as “going in circles” is a dishonest move and has a stifling effect on open debate. If allowed to stand, it would mean that any legitimate rebuttal could be forestalled by simple rhetorical assertion (absent reason or evidence) - “you’re wrong because I say so.” This is called argumentum ad lapidem or “argument by dismissal” - a recognized logical fallacy.

And I'll leave it at that.

If you want to continue trolling this thread, that I have tried steering back on topic, feel free.
