Benedict Evans / Via Twitter: @BenedictEvans

So in any contentious topic, it's hard to avoid expanding a tweet into what you infer they must mean, rather than what they actually said.

@KennyStoltz @wakehamp no, that wasn't what I said.

@mynamesmasha no, that's not what I said. What I said is right there for you to read. Try it, sometime.

@thememorious that comment has nothing at all to do with what I said

@RajivVarma that has no bearing whatsoever on what I said

@CrystalPepsi @supertamsf no, I said the exact opposite. Read what I said, instead of projecting your prejudices

@Bitcoin_Watcher that's not what I said. In fact, I said the opposite

@lakeline I didn't say that. I said what I said. You can read it, right there.

@quinnnorton nope. I said exactly what I said.

@NicMcC83 Given I didn't say I hate the homeless, I refer you to . Read what I *SAID*.

@GarettJones I have no idea, at all, what you’re talking about. Start again. Read what I said, then add value. Be civil.

@connormcmk That wasn't what I said, though. So...

@robleathern yes? That's consistent with what I said.

@mikepetruzzo @benwerd i have no idea what you're trying to say. But it has nothing to do with anything I said. Read, don't assume.

@Arthur99100 no, I mean what I said. It's disfunctional.

@mccaig read again. Then work out what I said. It’s not that hard to understand.

@DaveCothran No, actually, I meant what I said. It's right there for you to real. See?

@Jewthulhu I'm always happy to discuss what I said, but not to discuss what I didn't
