Please don't put words into my mouth -- that is not what I said at all.
My meaning was very clear from the example I gave, and if you'd like to
discuss that I'd be more than glad to; discussing a position that you
attribute to me, on the other hand, is non-productive for me, and I have
tons of other, more interesting non-productive activities to indulge in
before this one comes to the top of the list.

I'm afraid that there will always be information passed in confidence to
FOSSCOMM members, and if I have a choice between breaking a trust given
to me by a friend and adhering to the principles of openness and
transparency, guess which one will prevail?
