You just keep reiterating things that don't address the concerns I raised about "PJ" being mystery-shrouded and not verifiable. Your point (1) is very unconvincing. You just say you believe everything's fine though you don't know specifics. What Updegrove said is by far not enough for him to make the claim he made. And (2) is a strawman because an avatar shared by a team or by different people over the years can also be "passionate" etc.
Even if one believed your points (1) and (2) combined, that still would not address the issues I raised on ZDNet and which Updegrove referred to. If he makes reference to my concerns and then says everything's fine, while meaning something different, then he's misleading to say the least.
Concerning the backing-up of facts, didn't you click on the links in Groklaw's "sue the pants off TurboHercules" article and find out that "PJ" told the oppposite of the truth about a claimed limitation of IBM's patent pledge (the very first and central statement of that Groklaw article), especially since it was pointed out in the discussion there but not even corrected then, which means that if "PJ" saw the correction, she decided to lie anyway? Assuming the answer is No, does this concern you now? Assuming the answer is Yes, didn't that give you pause and why do you then make the claims you make here?
