You cling desperately to your stupid "I'm thinking of a number" straw man because you know that I'm right. Everything that hasn't been confirmed not to be a threat is a threat. You secure your turf, survey it regularly, and build a wall in the hopes it will be good enough to deal with the threat of the unknown.
You know this, of course. Children could figure this out. You're taking this position because you seek to work against the interest of your neighbour and you don't want the task to become more difficult.
You're selfish, and it's as plain as day for all to see.
