For baseband signals surely the ADC replaces the detector.

You are not the only one who reads these posts.
Often rephrasing the explanation in several different ways can make it
clearer to others.
Whilst one's own explanation may seem perfectly clear and logical to
oneself this doesn't necessarily mean that others see it in the same light.
It all depends on the readers experience and background.
Often its the unstated assumptions that make the explanation more
comprehensible to others.
