I've added Rob's question to
Alongside it I've added this general commentary:
The Nature of these Web Pages
Your friendly webmaster here.
Please note that just because something appears in these web pages
doesn't mean it is or is not true. There is a lot of speculation in
these web pages. Where possible, I try to present both sides of any
controversial issue. Except in occasional interjections such as this
one, I prefer to present topics in the original words of those who
have posted messages about them.
Everyone please remember that history is largely a matter of opinion.
I do try to select texts that are coherent and make sense, but that
does not mean that they are necessarily true. Where there is some
clear consensus that I can detect as to the historical facts, I do try
to present that consensus. But remember, I am just a scribe; I do not
claim to be a historian, and I am certainly not an expert in all (if
any) of the topic areas covered in these web pages. Some of the people
quoted in these web pages are experts in their subject areas; some of
them are the foremost such experts in the world. But even they can
have differences of opinion.
For that matter, many of these texts are questions, not assertions.
Even the texts that are not phrased as questions often have value in
being treated as questions. Sometimes this method results in
significant new research that changes some people's opinions, as in
the Argyll page.
That said, I strongly urge everyone to cite their sources, and I
include sources wherever possible.
