It would help if you state (or link) the specific concerns about Purism
separately from the judgments. Surely someone has collected the examples
so that people can see for themselves. People unfamiliar will not accept
an unknown source just leveling accusations.

The thread you linked to is more of the same problem. It starts with
people saying "fraud" and other accusations and has back and forth about
it all. It's not trivial to parse that conversation. If this is as
important as you feel it is, please help us out by consolidating the
concerns in a way that newcomers to the issue can readily process.
