I didn't say there were any.

The alternative explanation is that I'm right, and they don't have any
evidence. Have you even bothered to consider that?

This has not nothing to do with me taking offense; if that were the
case, I'd have done it *years* ago. This is entirely about mob rule
and presumption of innocence.

What are you talking about? This 'discussion' was started by Benjamin
"Mako" Hill and the people who signed his 'pledge'. I was forced to
respond, and as I noted in my first mail on the subject, I had not
wanted to ever have to fight this battle. I've been letting people
tell stories about me for ages without intervening.

I really *don't care* what effect it has on me. The point is to show
how very bad their actions are, so that people don't ever do something
like this again. Debian does not need a culture of witchhunts.

It seems to be working.
