What unwarranted conclusions? I noted that the website was "environmental."
It was self-described that way by the person who advertised it

Lee's comment about "ugly lesbian tree huggers" is in an entirely different

connection with my use of the word. I certainly did not mean to imply
anything aesthetic, mental or sexual by my use of the word.
