Plagiarism is also about stealing another's ideas or theories - granted. But the worst form of plagiarism, is someone who copies or at worst 'cuts and pastes' whole sections of another's written work and takes credit and money for it without any due recognition given to the original author.
Its ironic that I - having been a victim of this - am now being accused of plagiarism - especially when its on record as to how Don and I first came to this image in the Washington map in 2005.
I suggested that we might work together on the things that we can agree on - i.e. focus on getting at why this image is in the map - something which I have my own theories on - and the things thast we have each discovered in our own way, and still you are on the defensive and your whole attitude towards this is offputting and its a shame.
Its a wonder any progress is made researching into these things; these mysteries, if people are going to quibble.
No-one is stealing or taking your research away from you if we are all here discussing this and agree that you have come to many of these things before the rest of us. I will even place a link to your website.
The fact that you feel you have to point out where I am "going wrong" or have "gone wrong" shows that I haven't taken my own findings direct from yours.
I showed how I came to what I found through what Don first discovered in regard to these 23.5 degree avenues. I was looking for a 52-degree angle in the map, as I have often found these angles together in other sources, and then found that New hampshire Avenue made a reference to the angle of 52 degrees - being close to this angle - and it all began to logically fall into place after this.
If you cannot accept this, then I see no reason to carry on with this thread - especially if you are not prepared to express any generosity or positive, co-operative involvement - but of course that's your choice.
All the best,
