I don't mean to speak for Nadim here, but I suspect at least some of
his concern stems from the redaction of the endnotes in section 10 of
the document on the Cryptocat wiki, which read "Special thanks to
Jacob Appelbaum, Joseph Bonneau, [&c]", to your version, which
reads "This document was authored by a number of anonymous
contributors". You were credited, Jake, and it is disingenous and
derailing of you to attempt to claim that Nadim did not credit you or
"think[s] that you own [your] work product."
As the academics among us on this list are well aware, plagiarism is a
serious concern. I personally have seen far too many instances of
plagiarism or likely plagiarism swept under the rug -- including the
one that led me to quit my PhD -- to be comfortable with seeing this
matter "resolved" behind closed doors; I would prefer to see it dealt
with right here where you brought it up by failing to properly credit
- - it was section 9 some months ago, but section 10 now
