Oh good, you can settle a bet I have with a friend. What newspapers does he take, and which pages does he turn to first?

A few comments up, you asked, "Does 'reasonable' include an acceptance of
the consequences of such an action? Because honestly, I'd have seen Theo's
response coming a mile off..."

And here you are, mocking someone for making exactly that kind of
analysis.

Had nim-nim said "given Theo's actions in the past" (and actually cited specific examples) in support of his claim that Theo would dishonestly misrepresent private communications in public, I'd not have made that criticism. As you note, I have no problem at all with deduction from prior experience.

I'm sorry; nim-nim's implication. It didn't have the courage to be a claim.

Since you seem to want to enter a pissing contest where did I wrote dishonestly?

Theo's worldview and vocabulary is not the same as those of mere mortals. I certainly hope the misrepresentation is not intentional, but all his public interventions I've read so far (and this thread is no different) tend to spin reality in another dimension.

As to citing specific examples: plonk, if you trying to pretend you don't know what I wrote about you're nothing but a troll.

Right, so you withdraw from accusing Theo of acting with deliberate dishonesty, instead level what amounts to an accusation of schizophrenia, and then *you* describe *me* as a troll for asking you to support your claims...?

I'm sorry that I ever wasted my contempt on you.
