|In reply to Comment 120 (koan):|
"In my view Bernie did the right thing: the facts were already being (hotly) disputed here."
For both GPL mistakes? (I did not read every comment, sorry)
"If he was really good mates with the Friedens then he might have replied by private email instead but that's his prerogative."
One do not need to be good mates with anyone to be polite enough to send an e-mail.
I might have been wrong by directing my comment to just one person (Bernie).
I should have directed it to everybody who brought those two GPL mistakes to public rather than informed the author directly. (surely, if the author ignores it, then go public)
