First, it was offered as comment. Second, justification for why he regards it as unethical was given. Finally, I don't think there was malice against you personally, or any other developer, as he took pains to point out. I doubt many would consider it defamation, which normally involves malicious presentation of falsehood as fact, as I understand it. Further, I can't find a successful case being made for describing something as "unethical" being defamation. IANAL, though.

I suggest you note your disagreement with his opinion and cease posting to the list about it unless something new develops.
