On Sunday, a Wikipedia administrator alleged a person on Wikipedia is a sockpuppet on a very public noticeboard, but refused to provide evidence. She said people should assume good faith and believe her harmful allegation about this person.

A few people contacted this guy. He's a blogger, not a journalist (and shame on him for having misrepresented himself). While the intentions seem to be good, he won't even give you his real name, and most people declined to participate on those grounds.

You've gotta be kidding me. He actually said that about the email?

Yes. He said such things many times - and this was Durova's oft-repeated reason for not wanting to release the email.
