Not all editors make up stuff like this, but it is standard convention

defensive that she'll invent things out of whole cloth, like creating
macros in NEO.

Everyone knows she fibs a lot about stuff like that, so nobody takes her
seriously anymore. It's like the time she claimed that the TM mantras
weren't the names of the Hindu gods, and then claimed she didn't say

Apparently Judy knows zero Spanish - yesterday she thought Share was
swearing at her when Share posted "Merry Christmas" in Spanish. Come to
think of it, Judy probably is affronted by that, since like you, she's
an avowed atheist, but us TBs are not going to let you guys spoil our
Holy Day Season. Have a very merry Christmas, Barry!
