I mentioned you as a 'better judge' because it's an English question and you were formally trained in English.I'm no "judge."
But, as a matter of opinion, how do you equate a statement about an accusation being an actual admission of "guilt?"
So, in your view, just because he even mentioned it, it's an admission of guilt?? ....AND a "Freudian Slip??"
I just don't see your justification for that.
In this same thread, Slick-Beast said to another poster, "You're a well-known Commie."
So, by your "justification," if that poster said in another thread, "I was accused of being a 'well-known commie," then that is also a "Freudian Slip" and an admission of guilt to you??
At any rate, I only gave the link to the other thread to show you WHERE Slick-Beast's statement came from...Yes, another poster DID criticize him so. ----And it may even be TRUE; but I disagree with you on you "judging" his guilt by simply referring to that criticism.
If we use your example, "I was accused of being a well-known commie" is a different statement than "I was criticized for being a well-known commie." In the latter sentence, the person is communicating that they are in fact a well-known communist and was criticized for that reason. The former sentence has no such implication.
I say it's a Freudian slip because I doubt SlickBeast meant to imply that there. But that's how answering an accusation in the manner that SlickBeast did could be read as an admission of "guilt."
