Yes, it would. It would be more accurate to think he is accusing her
of actions having 'a distinct flavor of' 'a lack of
straightforwardness'. I don't this it too subtle a difference for a
writer to grasp. As someone else pointed out, Vince's behavior is the
kind of behavior that, repeated over and over, sometimes leads to
charges of sexual harassment. What I said was in the nature of a
warning to Vince. It was not an accusation. I did not use the term I
used lightly.

I am so happy for you that you feel your calling attention to this
incident is so entirely justified. It was important to me, and has
taught me several things, none of them that make me happy. But I could
have done without the magnifying glass.

Really thick shoes."
