Confusing wording[change source]

Hi. I was reading this page, but when I got to the Refusing to Listen and Wrong information sections I found something

The last sentence in Refusing to Listen says: "When people refuse to listen, even after other people, administrators, etc., explain things to them, then the person is making a point."

The first sentence in Wrong information says: "If people purposefully put wrong information into Wikipedia, to see how long it can stay there, or to cause disruption, this is wasting people's time, and is making a point."

It is quite confusing when the sentences say "is making a point." Maybe the sentences mean "A person is making a point when refusing to listen, even after other people, administrators, etc., explain things to them." and "People purposefully putting wrong information into Wikipedia, to see how long it can stay there, or to cause disruption, is making a point, and wastes people's time."

But then... why are those sentences in the article?
