No, but trying to call somebody out who's trying to teach you something when you're wrong is. Then calling them a d-bag...that sort of "intellect" is absolutely mind numbing to me.

Besides with a newer car with a computer controlled throttle the computer could compensate by opening the throttle slightly enough that makes the whole point moot if they chose to.
That wasn't a 5th gen Civic by chance, was it?
