Anything worth learning about mathematics I would prefer to learn from far more reliable sources than WM has proved to be, since there is no way to tell which parts of what WM teaches are true and which are not other than by going to more reliable sources anyway. > But obviously you do not like that in the present context.

That one argues against what WM claims is hardly evidence that one is arguing ad hominem. particularly when, as in the present instance, one has produced perfectly valid mathematical points contradicting WMs claims. WM claims that his model, which demonstrably fails to have three "angles" is a triangle. At least if, as in Euclid and since, an angle consists of a point called the vertex point and two rays emanating from it, is a triangle.
I point out that his model fails to satisfy every standard definitoin of being a triangle. And WM calls my argument an ad hominem.
But it is obvious that his calling it so is the only ad hominem involved.
