    But there is nothing wrong with doing that, per se.
    What is wrong is for you to criticise people for simply expressing a different opinion to you, or disagreeing with your advice.

    Nowhere in my post was I in any way abusive or rude. I simply pointed out that some of the factors you listed regarding cable choices were of little, or no, relevance in a domestic home network, and that putting in cabling to cope with more than 10Gb/s (or possibly even 1Gb/s) was overkill.

    Firstly, I don't think that the information was above the level necessary for a basic domestic installation (i.e. that people shouldn't know these things), only some of your suggested solutions. You'll note, I hope, that I didn't criticise you for mentioning the existence of Cat 7 cable, or the existence of length limits, but I did point out that Cat 7 would be over specced, and that length limits were unlikely to be a concern in the average house.

    Secondly, it's hard to reconcile you saying that I'm "entirely entitled to [my] opinions and probably correct" with you objecting to me expressing those opinions and then going whining to the mods when I had the temerity to stand up for myself.

    Openly sharing knowledge was what I was happy to do, and you were happy to do as long as it was only you doing the sharing, it seems.

    And that is an utterly ludicrous assertion. Nowhere have I engaged in an ad-hominem criticism of, or attack on, your contribution, and you do not have a scrap of evidence to back up such a claim.
    He does now, this post provides it.
