—and here we see just how deep Creighton’s disinterested search for truth goes. I’ve cited a source. He won’t look at it.
So much he cares for leaving readers of this board better informed.
In Creighton’s world of fantasy, my citing a source (normal academic protocol) is a species of con, and it really says something other than I say it says, and for the many years I’ve been citing it, I’ve gratuitously risked exposure.
So go on, Creighton! Expose me! It’s just the opportunity you’ve been looking for.
But Creighton won’t do this, will he?—because Creighton knows in his heart of hearts that things are not as he would wish them to be and looking at the book could only deliver another rebuff to his crackpot notions. So he compensates (while he can) by petty point-scoring, at the expense of truth.
