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.

update: 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.

    Excuse my misuse of the term "slander". I shall now use "libel" when ever I refer to it in the printed press.

    What, pray tell, exactly did I lie about? My intentions? My intentions were exactly as stated.

    Posting the question on PerlMonks doesn't seem like a particularly subtle way to cheat yourself into a job, especially when you have already mentioned in another context where monks hang out that the challenge was taken from a job listing.

    I have no more evidence to go by than you, but I find it hard to believe that BUU would be so delusional as to think this would go unnoticed.

    I do agree, of course, that his failure to mention his source is inexcusable.
