I don't believe anyone ever said, or even hinted, that at all.  I don't know
where you got that idea from...

I was merely pointing out that what people believed they were saying was
open to interpretation as there were things that were either mis-stated, or
it meant something different than people's apparent interpretation.

I'm not convinced the "evidence" is there yet, as I haven't seen it.  I'll
download the PDF test file, and see what it does...but without seeing the
file, and understanding what the actual "test" does, I don't know if the
test is even at all proper.  I'm happy to evaluate it, and let you know what
I think.
