Welcome...to my Shed!

This tweet popped up in my view yesterday:

Goodness! That's a rather glib and sweeping statement, does one not think? I posted this to my FLFG (Friendly Local Facebook Group) and got the usual 50% split in opinion; most of it, admittedly, directed at my response (see below) rather than the OP. As a personal preference, I abhor tie-breakers but try and pop one (max) in to my designs; other designs seem as profligate with their tie-breakers as they are with the contents of the rules themselves! I'm sure there's a fine and worthy discussion to be had...but not "opened" in such a manner.

My response (SP-tagged to lend a mild air of mystery) was:
Spoiler (click to reveal)

I believe I was justified, to-the-point and - yes! - restrained. The World spun on, naturally, despite the priggish huffing, the counter-trolling and the back-slapping; best to get it out of your system before the working week starts again, eh?!

One of the FLFG responses: provocative much?
