Mocking is something not advisable. 

It seems that my post is too simple to be understand by some.

No, this part was quite clear. 

It's the rest of the post that produced some hard head-scratching.

Always difficult for me to correctly express my opinions by translating them in a language I am not mastering. 

You wrote :" don't mock my teacher" 

I understood by that, it is ok to mock, but not my teacher. 

Hence my post trying to explain that mockery is not desirable, but that no one should be above it.

I think you're confusing mockery with criticism.

You think, yes. 

I don't. 

Different opinions,

and as always with an opinion, no one is particularly right or wrong.

But some opinions are informed, others are uninformed

I give up,

you used the word mockery in your post about your teacher. 

Than you write that I confuse mockery with  criticism. 

I answer I don't, I know the difference.

And now you post explanation of the words as if I don't know the difference.

The Self is the ego. It is indeed a construct and quite a despotic one.

Oh, you believe in the Freudian paradigm as well

Who is judging which opinions are informed or uninformed?

Who is judging a doctor when he has finished his studies? Or can one just declare he's a doctor without studying?

Since all opinions are equal, we can all be doctors! Who is to tell me otherwise? 555

No no, I give up. 

If you truly know the difference and still think it's ok to mock someone I deeply admire and respect, just because it should be your right to mock whomever you want, then I not only give up, but you can join the other guy in my ignore list.

You say you aren't a religious man, but here I see you are showing great faith, despite the odds against your hope.

If you put everyone who is not agree with you on ignore, you will of course only read posts of people who are agree with you. 

Where is the need to post on a forum than.

Whether there's any corroborating evidence. People pay money to get a barrister to give an informed opinion about the application of the law to specific circumstances. It's not a "wet finger" exercise
