    To me it is a bunch of leading and accusatory questions, impolitely
    framed, some of which are no better than "When did you stop beating
    your wife?".
    I can think of 500 ways to ask the same questions without sounding
    like an episode of Supreme Court.
    Sawyer and the moderators do a thankless task and they deserve better than that.
    FWIW, I am well aware that Andreas also does a thankless task, and
    fully respect him as a long term major contributor in our community.
    I just do not feel like anyone has the right to demand such answers
    from the Pumpking or Moderators.
    Just as I feel no-one would have the right to demand such answers from
    him if he had to make a difficult and socially contentious decision
    about PAUSE.
