If I say,"I can't trust you" in a context
I now must clarify that by being too terse
I have failed to convey the right nuance.
I meant, if you present a message:
"What I hate, and I don't hate too much in this world, is YEC. The "scientists" that run the YEC heist are all criminals, to put it bluntly."

Then I will think you said you hate someone.

If you say Young Earth Christians are bad and ththeir scientists are criminals, then go on to say that your science education at a Catholic institution was excellent, it sounds like
partisanship...or at least that a catholic would be much more pleased to read your post than a typical protestant person.
However, I meant that untrustworthiness would be conditional on whether you were clandestinely trying to advance the interest of one camp by presenting things in a persuasive rather than strictly oroportional report.

Wiping the slate clean sounds like you are willing to make my student loan balance disappear. I was unable to obtain teaching certification while they took my money. Why?
Because folks kept lying and lying and lying.
Why would they do that? I don't know.
At least here, we have a record of it.
