I would prefer an outcome that could better defend GNOME against the
abuse Microsofties are doing all around the world. I've heard them
saying the Free Software world supports MS OOXML giving such examples
as proof.

Now ECMA is leaving in the air the suggestion that GNOME participated in
the disposition of comments, because TC45 submitted replies, and they
reinforce that TC45 members are .... GNOME ....

Nobody can ask them to withdraw that statement because they don't
outright say it. This is a word play destined to transmit a message that
isn't there in syntax, but lives on in semantics.

I regard your troll detection algorith as too harsh, and I suggest a
lighter version be applied to your mail sending system ;)
