   RE: [xml-dev] xml schema

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Of course, you realize that short of a mind reader or a sworn affidavit I cannot give you this evidence. 
Now if your point is that one should not bandy about claims of bias without 100% proof, I concede that it is a valid point. It would have saved me a lot more time and responses to simply point out the failings and leaps of logic in the article then leave it at that instead of suggesting that given the author's background he probably had some ulterior motive. 
As for real refutations, I've pointed out the holes in the article more than once in this thread.

	I want specific evidence that the author of this article is biased.
	Note that this is quite different than evidence that the author of
	the article is wrong. You can be completely unbiased and still wrong.
	Absent such evidence, I find the claim of bias to be mere calumny
	designed to avoid a real refutation.
