In this archive I express the opinion that just because somebody died,
that does not permit random developers to go around making statements
on behalf of other developers. Not even "person X is sorry for your
loss". Not without the permission of person X. If making a stand for
simple integrity is so terrible, then colour me terrible. I do not see
what is so bad about objecting to people making statements, on behalf
of other people, without their permission.

[Obviously I can't repost or significantly report on all the stuff
people said to villify me and misrepresent my position as being
anything other than the above, but it's not relevant anyway]

I fail to see how expressing a simple opinion like that, which is not
even an uncommon one, *on a private mailing list*, could possibly be
'detrimental to the project'. That is pure slander.

If you do reply, please do so in public. I will not stand for any more
of this hiding behind unverifiable statements.
