You certainly did. I felt the same as Hans when reading the discussion

Now, you are lucky that I already know you and I know that you are
usually helpful and cooperative, so I know that you probably didn't
mean the aggressive tone you used. But presumably Hans doesn't know
you, so his reaction was understandable.

Hans is one of the main contributors to the hwmon subsystem and the
lm-sensors project in general. I would be grateful if the users he
tries to help could treat him with the respect he reserves. If he was
to leave the project, this would be a significant loss, and this is
something I really want to avoid.
