Yes, you're right. It's just a hypothetical question. And I'd like to
clarify, that in no way am I referring to specific people anywhere on
this thread (with the exception of the names I've already written).
Nor am I indirectly describing anyone in particular. Everything
written in this thread by me were my personal thoughts, and it was
nowhere my intention to portray specific people.

I'm very happy to hear that.

> Seriously.

I believe you. In the past, we often may have misunderstood each
other, and repeatedly argued too, but I've never doubted your honesty.
I truly believe that you always speak the truth, and I respect that.
