Tim attributes something to Barry:

Someone also claiming to be "Barry" retorts:

If you scan the headers of "Fred"'s message, you'll find 13 in there.
That's Barry's secret number, so Barry must have sent it.  Fred's secret
number is 68, and the headers of this later msg claiming to be from Barry

    Message-Id: <1075514668.1075.375.camel at anthem>

QED.  Nevertheless, I agree that the message I attributed to Barry *claimed*
to have been sent by Fred.  I'm afraid you'll have to work harder than that
to make a fool of me, guys.
