You should give full disclosure and say where and in what context
those statements were made.

They were made in IRC and people say all kinds of random things on IRC
when they're in a foul mood, are piss drunk, or simply got up on the
wrong side of the bed that day.

It's not like this was stated on a public mailing list or on some
public web site. It was IRC for heaven's sake.

And then then YOU took it to private email with various people.

And it's a certainty that you're volatile way of interacting with
people does nothing to help in situations like that. I can just
imagine how you handled discussing things with that person at that
moment in time, and how things likely escalated because of your
attitude problem.
