And I've never seen two separate editors who edit during the same time of
day not once edit simultaneously over a year and other 1400 edits each.  The
depth of evidence is really quite good.

Look, it doesn't even matter what the identity is.  What's outrageous is how
inquiries into these account's behavior has been suppressed by users who
suspected a COI all along.  If you suspected it, you should have encouraged
an investigation just to make sure everything was above board.  Instead,
users like Moven continue to Wikilawyer against it.  This is outrageous.
