Quite right.  It seems certainly appropriate to me to suggest to
people who signed the ID on the basis of the Transnational Republic ID
that they should revoke the signature, and that people who aren't sure
should do the same.

But the claim that Martin lied or committed a fraud, this claim is not
suggested at all.
