As this has degenerated into what I consider flaming, I've removed
others from the CC list and I don't plan on responding further.

will be considered spam isn't a discussion. No wonder the motivations of
others are unclear to you.

The implication that a member of the Credentials CG or the entire group
is guilty, by association, of harassment is quite unbecoming. Did they
also have mustaches? As you know, W3C Community Groups are freely open
to all on the Internet.
