Do you have legal advice on that? I would have expected the reasonableness
of the evidence to be judged on whether it has any impact on the market
place, which private emails certainly don't. I wouldn't think mails on
this list would either, for that matter.

In particular, I'd suspect "not inflaming the situation further" would be
evidence that we're not interested in rigorously protecting our trademark.
