Just a question. Thank you.

I want to be sure that the sentence: "Don't talk about me as ancient" is wrong. It should have been formulated this way "don't talk to me as if I were ancient" which, however, is different from:
"don't refer to me as ancient" (is the last one correct as it is?)
Do you agree with me?

    Your second and third sentences are right. The first one isn't really wrong, just awkward.
