I counted 9 direct quotes in the list I gave you

Hmmm. Well, most are ad hominems and some insults. But here's one of them:

* Overpeck has no recollection of saying that he wanted to “get rid of the Medieval Warm Period”. Thinks he may have been quoted out of context.(1206628118)

This is in reference to a quote that has been circulating the sceptisphere for some years. 'We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period'. It is attributed to Overpeck by David Deeming in an email. But here is what the linked CRU mail actually says:

There, I've done the work for you. Remember this was posted (or copied) in response to a request for the worst examples of wrongdoing. So the obvious question is ... what was the point of posting this?
