i.e. I can't find any reference to back up my assertion.

i.e. But A is clearly true because A is true.
And you made two statements for which you were asked to provide supporting
reference or argument, but only seem to address one of the queries.
I am sorry to say that if this is the level of argument, I am disinclined to

I am even surprised that this email has been dignified with answers, but I
guess it shows that others have more politeness than I am able to manage.
Please try to take more care with your postings.
