You just said that if only you had the time and money, you would try to
take down the SKS network using a legal procedure. A procedure meant to
object to your data being available on the internet, while you clearly
don't have a problem with your data being available.

A year ago, you threatened to do precisely what has happened now: poison
Rob's OpenPGP key. You might even be the one that has done it, we can't

That's not posting an opinion here. And it /is/ threatening to force
your way on other people.

This all is so bloody transparent that I don't see what your point is
yelling that the sky is green when clearly it's blue.

And apparently, I didn't check although it did ring a few bells, you
have in the past indicated you had wilfully fucked with other people's
OpenPGP keys to prove your point that it was possible. That's vandalism
in my book.

Neither of us gets to decide that for the other. BTW, you literally
asked a question ("Why so upset?").
