For the purpose of this discussion, I'm confining my research to the 
messages cited in the Last Call announcement.   It's enough work to 
understand the context surrounding each of those messages, which IMO is 
vital to evaluating them, without trying to evaluate other messages and 
their contexts.  More generally, I'm not interested in participating in 
a fishing expedition to dig up dirt on anybody, and I don't think the 
Last Call or a PR-action should be treated as an invitation to do that.

I'm not saying your accusation is right or wrong, but I do suggest that 
maybe it's out of scope for this conversation.
