You're engaged in a tribal defense of an author who has admitted to including material he can not source or substantiate, and who failed to alert his readers to the fact; you choose to overlook his repeated statements as to the veracity of the Internet, even as he uses the Internet to promote positions--such as his diatribe about HMS Dorsetshire--he poorly describes, and refuses to defend. So your position is precisely that: a tribal defense. Evidently, too, because you can't come to grip with the facts.
That is your right; if you choose to be buffaloed, who am I to interfere with your pleasure ? It's interesting that--somehow--you managed to shoehorn your dog and Trump into your argument, one being loyal and the other a liar without, actually, addressing the substance of my comments.
If I possessed your reasoning skills and tender feelings I'd pillory Raven for his drawing of USS Helena on page 209 of Friedman's US Cruiser design history....but I won't since I'm made of sterner stuff.
Your feelings were hurt; get over it and grow up, sonny. You want to challenge me about what I wrote, fine; but don't try to appeal to any number of logical fallacies to dodge your responsibilities: you can run, kid...but you can't hide.
