I did not deny that a relationship exists. I pointed out that there is no evidence presented to indicate that it is anything more than customer/supplier.

What kind of behavior are you referring to, exactly, Omo? Stating facts? Sure, I’ve done that for a long time. Questioning accusations made without supporting evidence? Yep, you got me there. Expressing skepticism about attempts to imply wrongdoing through innuendo and implication without actual evidence? Yep, done that too.

If that was what they were pursuing, I’d be all for it. But to call it equity or justice, it must be within the bounds of and guided by the governing documents as written, not some arbitrary sense of vigilantism driven by some unwritten set of ideals.
