I myself could have been a bit more tactful as well.
However, direct conversion has so many adverse artifacts that it makes me cringe to think of using it. The C21 is quite a lot better, IMHO than is a true “direct conversion” design.
The new SDR direct conversion process is a different matter with different issues, some good, some not good. But at least they don’t suffer from arbitrary sideband, hum and adjacent frequency overload (unless you send the A to D into overflow).

Emphasis maybe should have been put on the words "TUNES JUST LIKE". Sorry, I should have been more clear I guess. :-)
