Mr. Gallagher, I see my syntax was slightly ambiguous.
Initially I did
believe that the passage was authentic. Consultation with the WR-ites
revealed that they thought it was not. I had them move the thread into
the closed subforum so as to eliminate the (likely mistaken)
allegation out of public view, and I left an apology with SV.
Not wishing to be graceless, but it wasn't the most effusive apology
I've ever seen. After posting a COI notice about me, and someone else
pointing out the post in question clearly wasn't from me, you
apologized to me, adding "While I am not in general happy with your
approach to editing, after discussion with others I must agree with
them that the message in question could well have been a Joe job."
"Could well have been ..." suggests you still think there's a chance I
was the author.
I blocked a teenage vandal about a year ago who spent several months
plastering discussion boards with posts purporting to be from my
e-mail address. Several were to advice columns where I appear to
explain that I'm a pedophile unable to control my sexual appetite, and
beg for help, just in case you find that one during your next Google
search on me and think it's Smoking Gun 33⅓.
