      So how is 'sheltering behind a pseudonym' relevant? If you're not
      planning to sue your accusor, or engage in a duel at dawn, then it
      doesn't matter who it is, as long as its a consistent identity, which it

      You clearly do not enjoy being called a 'fabricator of lies'. Would it
      be more correct to say that you are not averse to making something up,
      if you don't know the real story?

      'If i've got it wrong'.... also known as 'if I've just *made something
      up*, for purposes of provocation, then the onus is on you to correct
      me,' (but calling me a liar is out of line).

      I can make whatever outlandish statements I like on the basis of nothing
      but my own deeply held prejudices, and its not a lie, its an 'educated'
      guess... And its their fault anyway for not giving me all the details
      of their internal discussions (can't imagine why...).
