This isn't evidence that John lied about anything. At best, it's evidence
that he's not following your instructions.
On top of that, while you have the right to ask him not to contact you
privately, it's completely unreasonable to expect him to not reply to
you in public forums.

While there might be such evidence, I couldn't recognize it.
In part, this might be because the formatting of that text was so bad
I had trouble reading it.
But I suspect it's also because the evidence you presented was inadequate
-- I believe that there wasn't enough there to prove anything.
Finally, I'd like to ask the same thing of you that I asked of Branden:
please spend the time you spend posting here on rational arguments,
not on this other stuff.
