Yes.

Respect for people implies avoiding the implication that their work is not  
valuable, or that they have not considered what they have said, as well as  
avoiding directly insulting people.

Your remark reads with an implication that Maciej should have read what  
you wrote and accepted it at face value, and that his contribution is  
effectively pointless. Whatever your intention (I have no idea what it  
was, actually), the tone of your words was less than polite and respectful.

Now, can we return to discussion of a complex set of technical issues  
please, while trying to be respectful of each other?

cheers
