... What? This is either the most naive interpretation of events I have ever
read, or it's disingenuous. iive has never been anything even approaching

We can agree to disagree. There's not much point in arguing
over one specific event. This mail was not about clearing up
a specific event, but a general problem. There's not much point
in devolving into that.
