Most of your evidence was on private mailing lists: there's no way we
could do that. (The word 'evidence isn't even really appropriate here.)
Thus all we really have to go on is the word and character of the
participants. Let's see, you or Linus. Boy, I wonder, *that's* a hard
choice. After all you've been acting in a way so sure to make people
believe every word you say.
(Yes, the way you say things *does* matter. I dislike it too sometimes,
but it's human nature.)
