You said ESPECIALLY. Let me explain how words work.
Your proposition is "it is silly to call taking advantage of greed-based stupidity unethical", then you added a rider. I discarded it to discuss your core proposition. "Especially" means that this case is MORE TRUE than your base case, but I do not need to address it to counter your base proposition.
Listen, if you want to revise your statement to "It is pretty dumb to argue that taking advantage of greed-driven stupidity is unethical when there is exactly zero information asymmetry." - that's fine, we can debate on those terms. However, I have to assume that you actually choose the words you use for a reason. I know we're just postin' on internets, so if you request benefit of the doubt, I'll give it.
Please don't criticize because I argued against the words you said, rather than the words you meant to say.
This is literally the spergiest, most neckbeardy, "hrm yes you sire will see the wisdom of my words" post I have ever read on this forum. Good lord.
