First, it's libel, not slander. Libel is printed, slander is spoken.
Second, I never said you cheated to get a job. Only that this might be an indication that you are. In absence of further evidence, it still remains a possible explanation of the visible facts.
Third, I will now need to take you on your word that you didn't not intend to cheat, even though this is inconsistent (in my mind) with the rest of your actions around this issue. I understand what you are saying, but it still smells.
OK, having read L-R's description
, I'm more convinced you just lied to me in attempting to defend yourself. Admittedly, it's hearsay, but I'm now saying it smells even worse.
