I am sorry, but I have no idea what you are trying to say.

I am sorry, but still no clue.  Either way, I know at least some of
Bernhard's comments to be true, so if one were wrong, why would he
withdraw everything said?  By the way, you repeatedly make statements
here that you must at least by now know are not true, so please apply
the same standard to yourself.

The FSF and the FSFE are sister organizations and I see no actual
identity abuse there.  I am not sure which question people are avoiding
there and I have no idea which figurative bullet you are taking about.

Happy hacking!
