Whenever I have to correct somone I try to give them an easy out.
You should have taken it, or at least thought things through.
What you said was false. Both in parts and in whole.
What you said:

So now you want to mealy mouth and claim you were saying it would be fast so long as I don't consider anything but other 4200rpm drives? While at the same time claiming a 4200rpm drive is fast and then saying drive rpm isn't that good an indication of drive speed?
a drive with "X" should be fast because of Y and Z because "X" isn't that good an indicator of speed
What you said is quite clear. Its meaning is equally clear. The problem is that what you said is false.
You can not state something and claim to not have said it. You can not misquote yourself to claim you said something else.
Your statement was false. Live with it. Either learn more before you post or learn to take criticism better.
