Some of us will make multiple attempts to understand each other, stating their position in slightly different ways. That may involve a certain amount of repetition. It's not always worth it but that is mostly obvious in hindsight; now that we seem stalled, it's pretty clear we face diminishing returns. On balance I'd rather communicate more than less. At the worst, it does not help my interlocutor but it helps me think about the issue differently. (And vice-versa I suspect). I trust we're all old and smart enough to write - and read - as much as necessary, and that we understand that this threshold is not the same for everyone. Sorry if it bothered you.
