Marko,

first, I don't think it is fair for you to mention viewpoints that I voiced either to you privately or in the group.

No. What I'm saying that a pseudonymous poster without any history, who pops out of nowhere gets credibility. Specifically do people take the following affirmation at face value?

Another thing. A new account(with 3 comments) from a pseudonymous poster who doesn't identify himself, posts some subjective claim and other claims that can't be verified and gets 42 points upvotes. Something is wrong here.

Roland has given me new essential information about a conversation between him and another organiser mentioned in the post , I first wanted to check this with said organiser (I did now and it seems that not everything Roland told me is actually true). I gave new information, but it is not essenti...(read more)
