I’m content to let other decide for themselves if my assertions are true – just like I’m content to accept that you’ve established that this model was followed throughout the empire in spite of the fact that you’ve hardly produced objective, third-party evidence for your assertion.
Speaking only for myself here, I find that your ad hominem style eclipses and overshadows any & all information you present in your posts. Sorry, and I'm really not trying to be mean here, but it's sort of like waiting for Chevy Chase to say something with dramatic aplomb.
If one cannot refute evidence which proves one's position regarding an issue is in error, the only tactic remaining is an ad hominem attack.
But if one is really lucky, one's posts might be "blocked" by jlb, thus reducing dealing with his usual ad hominem tactics.
