Claims of "misconduct" based on FOI*.zip get this response from me
Deep Climate, Snapple:
McIntyre [q. v.], and climate inactivists in general, should give a straight answer [to] this question: Did FOI2009.zip or FOIA2011.zip reveal any actual, specific, actionable instances of attempts to falsify data or results, or attempts to suppress good, solid science?
But of course they won't answer the question -- because they know that the true answer is "no".
So instead, they make a lot of irrelevant noises about 'oh noes climatologists said unflattering things about skeptics', etc. etc. etc. Last I checked, saying unflattering things about people one doesn’t like is in no way a scandal, and in no way a firing offence. But you won't find people like McIntyre pointing that out. It's all spin -- spin for the purpose of avoiding the key questions.
And (via Prof. Michael Mann) as an aside, for some reason I find the Mother Jones story The Frog of War to be really ... hilarious.
