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?
