You mean other than the message you affirmed pretty strongly?

Maybe it's a difference between Australian English and British English,
but I'd think those four words in the context that you uttered them carry
exactly the same meaning as the message you affirmed. Said message was
dismissive of project forks, the reasons for them, the people who start
them, and the importance of licences that people choose to make
contributions available under. It was specifically dismissive of "people
with agendas" which has become a commonly used passive-aggressive label
(especially on this list) for those who voice concerns.

So I don't think I inferred much at all, I think instead you were quite
explicit.
