This almost borderlines on slander.

I always actively advocated *against* this practice, and it's shocking 
to see being accused of it myself. Even just a few minutes ago I 
finished reviewing a new piece for SM and that was one of my main 
criticisms. Being against this practice was the main reason I made 
-prefix-free for crying out loud!

Tantek apparently only checked my work in WebKit, saw -webkit- and 
unprefixed only (cause that's how -prefix-free works) and inferred that 
I only added and advocated adding -webkit- prefixes. Didn't even check 
the source, nothing. Shocking how easily some people assume the worst 
and spread it around with little or no evidence.
