But you did tell me one thing. The same thing that I always "learn" when
someone reacts in this way. When a legitimate discussion, in this case
about insensitivity to sexual assault, is met with mocking of the "charges"
("convicting [marxmail] of....") and arbitrary augmentation of the supposed
"charges" (try to document that list of charges!!) in order to make light
of the whole matter. And to preempt any further DISCUSSION of issues which
could plausibly be portrayed as an escalation of those "charges."

Defensiveness speaks volumes!
