If you ignore the context, perhaps. This is a thread in which
it has been stated the ballot was entirely deceptive

And, after I tried to defend myself by stating that
the difference was indeed posted to d-d-a, and that the full text was
sent no less than four times to the list, I get a response saying
that this was not good enough. Yes, I get testy when people tell me
that my claims of the ballot being open and on deceptive are not
quite good enough.
So no, this was not just a ``simple suggestion'' being jumped
upon by me. But, doubtless, you have already made up your mind of how
much an ogre I am, so this message is probably falling on deaf ears.
