I know the guy more than those words from a magazine by a journalist I do not know from a magazine which reliability I can not form an opinion on either.
So I do not. Instead I obviously put my experience against the one quoted there: I do not deny that.
Let me put it this way, something I am sure you would appreciate:
Someone quotes one very likely edited and shortened interview, and conclude that the guy has some serious issues, but he does not know that guy, only reads that one interview which may be partial or misquoted. So what he thinks could easily fall into the category "That's a pretty big conclusion to jump to" - to quote someone I also find a cool and honest guy
Just my 2ec and I conclude at that.
