I meant this in the way that your inquiries to GlobalLogic - just like 
those of the MWG - did not yield any plausible alternative explanation 
for the observations made (which is my understanding of "come up with 
an explanation that perfectly matches the report").  If i misunderstood 
you on that please say so.

Whether you consider observations compatible with a hypothesis you have 
a confirmation of the hypothesis or not is of course a philosophical 
question you can rightfully have different opinions on.

So lets just neutrally formulate this as:  The board's own inquiries 
produced results that are consistent with the findings of the MWG.
