Hartmut publicly claimed here I had a secret agenda and that I am
trolling, which implies I am being deceptive. Additional things have
been claimed about me in private which aren't important here, and yes
I am feeling very defensive towards that group who are publicly and
privately politicking against me for some reason. Thomas works with
Hartmut, and has in the past argued similarly to Hartmut. Theirs are
not arm's length individual opinions.

This is fair. I did tar Thomas with the Hartmut brush without
sufficient reason. I apologise.

Incidentally, of that group of people the only one I've ever talked
with personally is Thomas, and it was he who initiated that not me.
We disagree on almost everything :), but I'll acknowledge right now
that he alone out of that group made the effort to reach out for
which I am appreciative.

And I reiterate my respect for that group's coding abilities. I've
learned a lot from their code, and will continue to do so.

Fair enough.
