Somebody help me out here.
Not possible, from what you've described. He sounds like he'd argue that water's not wet, and the earth's flat, if you gave him a chance.

Personally I only take slats (B717) passing about 3000' AAL, approaching about 210 kias, unless I've mucked up the approach, or ATC request reduced speed and I want to slow down fairly quickly.
