" I hadn't expected such a cynical response. "

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Actually, the response is not excessively cynical but a pretty
sharp observation of "problem-solving"
Most technical experts frame their analyses of data within their
own frame of reference.
A surgeon is more likely to "cut" than another doctor.
A pharmacist is more likely to consider pills.
A mother might consider the value of chicken soup.
A bartender might suggest a shot or two.

People define problems based on their own unique perspectives -
and their own interests can impact their judgements.

Also tends to be a reason folks divide discussion boards based on
political perspectives. Folks tend to "mark" their territory.

Most times this results in a rather unpleasant odor which is not
always recognized by the "markers".
