I think your further explanation was just fine, but the bit about insults and 
ignorance was unnecessary to explain that point.

To me "don't force plasmoids down my throat" doesn't read insulting towards 
Plasma creators, John offered the idea (and I didn't get the impression that 
John felt particularly insulted by it -- correct me if I'm wrong though). It 
was a reply to John's crazy ideas. (Where crazy clearly means "good".)

The bottom line is that it would have been easy to *not* take this personal.

Just to point out the obvious, while it might be human to lose patience, it's 
not OK, and certainly not helpful.

That's not my impression at all. The CoC applies to everyone, and even if 
someone doesn't keep to it, that's not a justification for someone else to 
ignore it.
