I think you need to search Deja News again. I have that thread in my
looking at it just the other day. Kay certainly did quote the cited
fact it was an extremely long post. And, if memory serves me, you did
about it at the time, so I am fairly sure you saw it.
As for the rest, again you are incorrect. Search again.

Todd was not the only one involved in this thread, nor is he the only
involved in research into this matter. Kay posted the cited material, I
has every right to comment on it now.
