You win MS. No discussion needed. This post won't invite any more contributions. I'm confident its done. Paradigm remains in tact.
I can understand how you feel – many times I have thought of giving up on GHMB.
I do not however think it is that bad. Yes it is obvious that most of the comments are from trolls. Yet I started this thread on the 6th Feb 2020 and 5 days later it has had 255 hits. Many of those hits are no doubt return visitors but I expect there have been 50 or more individual visitors to this thread. The people who visit this forum are no doubt those who are interested in alternative views of history. And hopefully they have read and given some thought to the thesis I outlined on the opening page. I certainly could not have reached that many people via any other means.
Bottom line is this, there are maybe 5 trolls pushing a crumbling paradigm that not even they believe - but 50 or more people looking for a historical narrative that makes sense.
I am okay with that.
