I'm not sure you understand what deflection is. Because really, you have not been inspiring, and the longer you allow this to drag on, the less you're likely to become such.
Of course it's deflection, if instead of engaging in discussion, you stoop down to attacking the writer instead. Classic case.
However, I see now that it is hopeless to try and argue with you, when you are not open to discussion, so whatever. Have a nice day.
