What an outrageous, unpleasant and absurd comment that was. As if I need to show anyone how clever I am! It's almost as absurd a comment as when Tom Wescott called you "petty and jealous" for questioning the hospital record he produced in his book. Feel free to challenge my arguments and conclusions by all means but it's quite wrong and unacceptable of you to impugn my motives in such a manner.
Let me get this straight, calling people 'muppets' isn't unpleasant and absurd? It often happens in life that when you dish out insults you get them in return.

Grow up.

that's it? no debate or response on the content and arguments and subject matter of the article?

There's nothing to debate AN, nothing to refute, Mr Orsam as ever, has done his homework. "One off instance" scuppers the Diary good and proper, both as being written by Maybrick, and being an old hoax.

For me, the revelation that MIke Barrett was no duck egg, and had articles published in a national magazine was particularly revealing. If you remember we were told by a member of this forum that he was incapable of filling out a sick note! We'll probably be told now that the articles in question were ghost written for Barrett.

LOL! totally agree on all points.

Is this your way of giving us a demonstration of how to be "a charmer"?

Grow up.
I explain at length in the sub-article to which the main article links why I referred to that group of posters as muppets. I would say it was a perfectly apt description in the circumstances given the comical display of muppetry seen in the response on JTR Forums to my "one-off" post in this forum. I don't believe it can be fairly described as unpleasant and is certainly not absurd.

Your comment about my motives, on the other hand, Gary, was, indeed, unpleasant and absurd, as well as outrageous, and I note that you make no attempt to deny that or defend it.

The irony is that when Tom questioned your own motive in challenging his use of a hospital record, and suggested you were doing so because you were "jealous", I was one of the few people, if not the only person, to step forward and call him out on it. Because it's ridiculous to twist motivation in that way. It would have been equally ridiculous if Tom had accused you of trying to show how clever you were.

What I was doing was challenging Robert Smith's book and, in particular, his claim that he has conclusively established the provenance of the Diary. Perhaps you might want to start discussing that book, which is the subject of this thread, rather than amusing yourself with daft comments about me.
