I have tried to stay out of this in that I am not a TU and my input carries
no official weight.  I am, however, a moderator on the forums and a
professional with significant experience in the field of trust, so I hope
you give me some creed.

I find your argument to have no basis in fact and to be borderline libel.
I have, throughout my career, had positions of trust with my government
backed by sundry clearances.  At present, I am in the credit card
processing business, which has its only level of trust.  I have watched
Graysky for months.  I have been an practicing engineer for more than 25
years, and have no reason to question his ability; If you do, so be it.
His technical ability notwithstanding, I find your calling his
trustworthiness in to question to be inappropriate and suspect it to be a
red herring.

I assert you should provide evidence for your lack of trust in him, or you
should apologize publicly..
