point out that to determine a service on a port it is not enough just to complete a full TCP hand-shake and Telnet to it if there is a response.

I think the main focus of the comments were to determine which of two tools were right about whether or not a port was in fact open, and not anything beyond that. I think you're right about testing HTTP with HTTP interactions, etc, but the scope here was just figuring out if there was an open port.

I think that's why you got the response you did from the list.
