Cold summers definitely. Maximums of 12.4, 14.2 and 13.6 in summer aren't even close to being mild, and only two months average above 10C.

Personally (and most people would agree) a mild summer has maximums between 19-24C.

Here's a climate that has truly cold and gloomy summers

Reykjavik probably doesn't reach that even every year.
Warm is 16-20°C. 21-29°C is hot.

No. It it mild in July and August, with mean temperatures in the mild range of 11-15°C. it is chilly in June though. Mean temperature between 19 and 24°C would be a warm to hot summer.

It has a mild July and August and a chilly June, not cold.

The word "warm" doesn't even serve a purpose if it can be used to describe Reykjavik's summers, which are "cool" at best.

Your friend needs to relax.

While this is true, you can challenge subjectivity a bit by using a larger and more spread frame of reference (aka the whole world). Then it's quite obvious that a place like Reykjiavik is on the colder and gloomier side in whatever season you get compared to the average climate of the world, more so if weighted by population.

This is what this kid Randomguy can't do and ends up polluting threads with stubbornly ridiculous statements.
