If you mean these draft slides:

it has very little verifiable information in it. It just 
cryptically says lock hold time "microbenchmark", which might or 
might not be a valid measurement.

You could have been honest and straightforward in your first 

 "I ran workload X on machine Y, and got results Z."

Instead you are *hindering* the discussion:

If you meant the above URL then it's not the proper numbers 
Thomas asked for, just some vague slides. If you meant something 
else then put up or shut up.
