Merkey's emails were spoofed?

I raised an eyebrow the first time I saw the emails that were purported to originate with Jeff Merkey. The guy has a more than healthy ego and a set of perogatives that have often been in less than harmony with the majority of the linux kernel mailing list. But he's not an idiot.
In this light, it bears mentioning that Jeff Merkey has disavowed the emails that have gotten everyone all riled up. I.e., he says he didn't write them. You can read all about it in Kernel Traffic #283, A Little bit of SCO Status. I'm surprised LWN.net wasn't aware of it. I hope they bother to update the main story to reflect the fact that the claims they are making are disputed.
