Climategate 2.0 - Phil Jones on Judith Curry's 'inferiority complex'

More from Phil Jones and Tom Wigley. As bluegrue has pointed out in a comment below, the capitalised sections are Tom Wigley's. This is from #5256 - where we learn about Judith Curry's 'inferiority complex...' The more interesting bits I've bolded...

      Tom,
         Off tomorrow and not back in CRU till March 10. I'm not supposed to
      talk to anyone of the report authors !  There was a lot of odd things
      said after the presentations in Chicago last week. We're charged with
      writing a report, which will be published, but you get to rewrite the report
      and no-one sees the one we looked at !  What is the point of publishing it !
         Roger Pielke didn't come out of it too well. Some thought he had some
      good ideas but didn't express them very well. Most thought he just didn't
      express them very well. All thought Ben's was the best chapter. Almost
      all think RSS is right. Also why is Fu et al. dismissed as controversial?

     A VERY GOOD POINT TO STRESS. THIS IS CHRISTY'S WORDING.

       Likely most work will be needed on Ch 6 and 1, then 2-4 and least for 5.
      The Exec Summary was deemed OK, but it isn't a summary of the report,

     ACTUALLY, IT IS. ALL ITEMS *ARE* IN THE CHAPTERS -- BUT ONLY
     THOSE DEEMED MOST IMPORTANT (BY ALL EXCEPT ROGER!!)
     MAYBE I WILL HAVE TO DO ANOTHER (SIDE) VERSION THAT CITES THE
     SOURCES BY CHAPTER AND LINE NUMBER.

      so you'll have to do some major reworking.
         Remember I didn't tell you all this. Lots of details to come - not sure when.
      Seems a long-winded process.

     COMMENTS DUE BY MAY 1, THEN WE HAVE 2 WEEKS TO MODIFY/RESPOND.

      Cheers
      Phil

The capitalized parts are by Tom Wigley, not Jones.
