Kindly restrain from insulting others who disagree with your beliefs. Such small-minded comments only serve to weaken your position. I didn't know Scott was publishing another book until Stower started his character assassination discussion about it. And thanks to Stower, I do intend to buy Scott's book.
You weren't insulted. You were called "lackeys." Plenty of evidence for that.
So, you weren't consulted by Creighton about having your name in his book as "an independent researcher?" Are you saying that Creighton used your name without your permission? John Snape says otherwise.
Creighton will be over the moon about selling three copies, because that will be it, unless, of course the dog can read.
