The post it was responding to was about France as a Democracy. I used the word "modern" in the sentence as a point of separation, and then followed it with a sentence that clearly described what I meant by by that delineation.

There's a reason they went from a major world power in the age of Kings to a me-too country in the Anglo-American age.
There's absolutely no way you can read that sentence and still maintain that I said France under the House of Bourbon had little impact.

You basically keep reiterating what I already said and then say I didn't say it.
