I distinctly recall your using the word bigot or bigoted to describe me in a private note.You have me at an advantage because I can’t review the notes because I don’t know how to find them. I don’t even know how to start.

The only way I know to look at a note is to go to the notification. I can’t do that because they don’t go back that far.

But it doesn’t matter. If you want me to say that you didn’t use the word bigot, fine. I will believe you if you say so, although I remember otherwise. My memory has been known to fail me on occasion. I’m no spring chicken anymore.

This is all mere deflection on your part in any case.

What matters is that you have ignored everything that Saoirse, alto, Fred Shirley, and I have said to you. What matters is that you are complicit in our persecution and you owe us a sincere apology for that.
