I said:

a) "If you accuse others of not even having read [the FDL] ..."

(Note I didn't say you accused *me* of not having read the FDL.)

In reply to that you said:

b) "I did not make any such claims."

Further you said:

c) "I claimed that _MJ_ hadn't read the GFDL."

So how does your statement c) not prove my statement a) which you
claim in b) is wrong?

Are you playing on the subtle and questionable (in this context)
difference between "claim" and "accuse"? Or to my use of "others"
(plural form)? Both things are totally irrelevant here.

Do you want to discuss the FDL or do want to distract the discussion
by silly language issues? Should we continue this discussion in
formal logic notation?
