I actually did not go public with my concerns until I felt that Austin
and the rest of Haystack were not acting in good faith.

You're continuing to underscore why it was important for me to share my
concerns with others. So while we're on the subject of confirming
observations, thanks for that.

Haystack needed to be discussed openly and thankfully, cooler heads
prevailed when the obvious facts were presented to them.

All the best,
