in reply to To "Disagree to disagree" means to:

Example: Two people stated something.

  1. A stated X
  2. B stated Y

Now A says: "X means the same as Y, so I agree with B".

But B says "X means something different than Y, so I do not agree with A".

So they both disagree to disagree, right?

    I think I get it.

    A agrees with statement Y thus agrees with B.

    B agrees about the truth of Y, but not with A's stated reason for it thus he disagrees, at least in part, with A's second statement.

    I am confused!
