I was not trying to defend anyone. I was trying to explain a bad way of
reasoning. The private support of "a number of people" does not mean
anything, statistically.

99% of the DCML members do not reread old mails. That includes yourself (as
someone recently noticed).
*I* didn't reread your old mail either: it took me too much time to find it
in my archives.

I can't selectively reject incoming e-mails. But I don't think I'll do
anything with them. I don't want the role of "neutral (??) judge" in this
matter. I tried that role before, and it didn't work.
