I disagree. I think Roger Leigh was honest about what
incident most motivated the heavy-booting of his complaint.
I think some other DDs are also flaming because of who did it
as much as what happened.

Yes. And I've been one of them, but I've never seen Andrew give
the level of abuse he's received in the last year. He may be
"Nasty. British. Short."[1] but two wrongs don't make right.

I don't need to paint. It already looks that colour to me.

[1] For those who don't get it: that used to be ntk.net's
strapline (maybe a nod to Hobbes?)  Andrew Suffield's
writing style is about as offensive, most of the time.
