Even the original poster changed his stance on this instead of just digging in his heals - possibly an Internet miracle. What is the need to defend a false and misleading statement?

Absolutely, factually, 100%, literally correct, in the sense of people having to be "right" over the chance of understanding each other? You mean like that?

No, it's not that kind of correct.

Taken in context, it's correct enough for me.
