Ton can defend his stance perfectly well, of course, but I'd like to
address this too. Ton is describing "the most avid haters". His
statement only works in one way: "most avid haters typically are X"
does not imply "all X are avid haters".

You don't appear like an avid hater, so why do you feel he is
addressing you?
