    Have you ever got an answer?

    After all this tourette vocabulary I got curious too. :)

      Have you ever got an answer?

      No, I have not. I have had some /msgs from BrowserUk, which I must consider private exchanges unless he should say otherwise. In these, he made clear his conviction that skullduggery was afoot, but he did not feel able to be explicit about his reasons, so there is little that I could add even if I were free to do so.

      I would like to have an answer. If this incident was vandalism on the part of some privileged individual, it would be of great concern to me. The timing of events was suggestive (Labo(u)r Day in N.A.), but of course Murphy's Law dictates that if something was going to break loose, that would be when it would happen. It seems unlikely that the procedures for some sort of "formal" forensic audit could be established to the satisfaction of all even if an audit trail exists that would support such an audit, which I doubt.

      ... all this tourette vocabulary ...

      Well... yes. Of course, this place is neither a debating society nor the EU Parliament (maybe more like the Taiwanese Parliament), so if someone wants to jump up on a table once in a while and howl, I'm inclined to a bit of toleration, especially if it's someone who has made as many and as valuable contributions as BrowserUk. But even so...

      (In fact, when the possibility of an impersonation was first raised, I thought I recognized certain characteristic markers. I went back and reviewed some of the effusions of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named (shudder) to get the scent again, but no luck there.)

        > especially if it's someone who has made as many and as valuable contributions as BrowserUk.

        So, who knows how many valuable contributions never happened by people scared away by BUK's behavior?
