Honestly, I wasn't offended in the slightest sense
Like I said, it all comes down to personal pref and experience. Plus, each tank from each person is like a totally different universe. Things can and will vary greatly from one person to another. Personally I have never done a test on the degree of chlorine that would cause yeast to die off so I can not say just at exactly what amount will that happen. Having said that, however, I do not advocate to use tap water readily unless one is certain at the chemicals which are being added to one's local water supply. I always treat the water before I add them to my tanks. Maybe in IZM's case, it does work with presence of chlorine. Maybe it is only present in very minute amount so as to render the yeast unharmed; I do not know. It would be very interesting to hear what IZM has to say about his local water supply. I am rather curious to know the amount of Cl present in his local water supply, actually, having read what he said about the plants/fish are not harmed. Just how much; maybe IZM can share with us.
