appreciate your reasonable responses and your huge investment in open
causes. nevertheless, at this point saying "they bad, it's secret" does
not look like a good pr.
this has all been brought out in the open, and all the involved either
have to clearly explain why the previously shared storyline is not
correct, or risk being labeled terrible censors.

i don't know the detail. Mikel, you have a chance to correct the facts,
presented earlier - otherwise i have to take them as true.

this sound supportable, but the concerns that this thread has raised
will cloud any such effort. you all will have to explain in detail what
happened to clear it.

i do not see a way around it - i've devoted so much time reading this
thread that by now i'm ready to read it all to the end, and i want less
