Unfortunately, this refers to a discussion on board-list (which I didn't
realise, as I've been reading my mail weirdly due to being without laptop
power adapter for a few days). Though it didn't broach confidence, I
apologise for bringing board-list issues across to foundation-list.

I suppose if you keep referring to anything I say as 'newspeak', someone
will believe it. Not a great way to encourage respectful discussion on this
list, and I don't really see the point besides trashing me personally.
