You are 100% correct. However, the article address those annoying guys that don't care about nobody else but themselves. I need to correct a few in the past. Stuff like...unload your bar, clean the freaking bench, put your freaking headphones, are you done talking in the cell phone, machine huggers, etc.
But like you said...a good question must be answer with respect. I'm a powerlifter and I take time to explain to people why I train in the way I do. However, if the person is making fun or trying to looks smart ass because don't know about lifting...then is a different story.
