Is there a reason you took a private disagreement to the public mailing

- regarding which you have confused me for the primary person
  disagreeing with you
- when in fact there are three people who directly disagree with you on
  that very issue, as I told you in that private discussion
- regarding which this public post seems to essentially exist in order
  to, I dunno, shame me into responding in view of the world at large,
  again despite my not being the only or indeed the primary person who
  you are actually disagreeing with?

I would like to register my formal objection to your treating this as a
personal disagreement between the two of us. I explained why this was
not an "Eli Schwartz thinks so" thing in that private email -- you
disliked my explanation and asked for more proof, while *simultanously*
CC'ing arch-dev-public with claims about how I "and possibly others"
disagree with you.

You did not give me a chance to respond to your new question before
CC'ing arch-dev-public.
