Everyone here knows what you believe, David.

I do wonder what Pierre thinks anyone can possibly discuss about a document they've never seen which supposedly contains at least one false statement (or lie) which no-one has any idea about.

The only thing I can think to discuss is that Pierre messed up completely with his Gogmagog letter last year by leaping to the conclusion that it was written by Jack the Ripper and he's probably done exactly the same thing again this year.

Gee John, now I am in favor (as a "Christmas Present?" of sending "Birnan Wood to Dunsinane" for Pierre (if it leads to his confronting MacDuff).

I can discuss whatever I want, David. I can speculate about sources if I want to. What I do in a forum is not relevant. What is relevant is my research.

Confirmation (should it be required) that Pierre simply cannot read any form of text properly.

Words in plain English somehow get twisted in his head to mean whatever he thinks they should mean.

David is fixated on me again. He feels he has to comment on everything I say and he reads and comments everything I write here. David spends enormous amounts of time reading my posts and commenting on them.

Pierre,

I'm afraid you are turning out to be the most recalcitrant of pupils. If you continue to misbehave I shall require you, as a penance, to translate Euclid's Elements, a geometrical treatise comprosing 13 volumes, into Latin.

David can not help himself wondering what I think. He does it all the time. He has nothing better to do than to follow me here and read everything I write.

I suppose I should be grateful that Pierre has at least understood me (on his second attempt) even if he hasn't quite grasped the fundamental point that it's impossible for anyone here to sensibly discuss with him his non-existent "xmas present".
