Came in an email, so I verified it's authenticity, no single site laid claim to it, so I posted it verbatim, never guessed anyone would assume I had written it, especially after writing the forward.

I would never claim my own work as a "Fascinating read".

Ain't sayin' you stole it, but yes, for just a teensy bit there I did think you had written it. Until I hit that part where I went "Say what?"

I would always claim my work is worth reading. But then, I'm doing the nasty over at Amazon for Kindle readers, so who am I to talk? (No link. Fair's fair here.)

:laugh:

I find it an honor, in that someone would assume I had written it, considering I like the guys style and ability to carry his message in an interesting and informative read.

Myself, I'm horribly dyslexic, constantly miss my own grammatical errors, use wrong words completely out of context, though they made sense at the time even after proof reading it three times, I could never pull off a post that long without some serious errors in flow.

I have read some of my replies months later and hadn't a clue as to what in the Hell I was trying to convey, which explains why they never got a follow up response.

My best flow comes right after I awake, and it's down hill after that, my subconscious is smarter than my awake half.....  :blushing:

Rewriting is part of the process, but so is "cold storage." My name for the gap of time between writing and publication, in order to gain objectivity. What's written in haste is repented at leisure.
