You are wrong.

I for one would appreciate if you'd throw in an "I assume" or "I suppose"
occasionally, instead of stating your assumptions (here: about what I
must have thought) as facts.

I could have written for each instance "the code Tom wrote", instead.  It
didn't occur to me - must be my mentality.  But in the same message I also
used "your code" and "your implementation" (addressed to you, Fote), as
well as in other messages. Apparently you do not find *that*

Other than the tone you did not like and the mentality you assume, and
that I didn't specifically mention anonymous accounts, it seems you didn't
find anything wrong with the factual content of the message.
