I am forced to agree that Leo's second sentence, as quoted above, contitutes
"casting aspersions" and in the absence of hard supporting evidence it was
inappropriate, uncalled for, and contributed only heat and no light to
the present discussion.

I made the exact same sort of mistake myself, right here on this mailing
list, back in 2016, and later publicly apologized for that. Perhaps that
explains why I am less inclined that others to make a huge issue out of
such utterances when they are made in the heat of the moment and without
adequate thought.

I think that it should be sufficient to politely ask Leo to retract that
one sentence, to apologize, and then let it go at that. We already have
more than enough wars to fight, tribal and otherwise, and we shouldn't be
looking for reasons to start up new ones just based on this or that
ill-considered statement that may be made by any of us during those times
when our passions override our reason.
