A joke really. Same thing happened to Graham - attacked by the old guard and silenced...but only there :) I hope you respectfully fired back.
Personally, I'm totally on the band wagon - giants walked among us in the distant (maybe not so distant...) past. Why not 14 feet or bigger...? Think giant sloth - according to Cremo, man certainly existed as far back as then. Who is right? Myths?
Tbird, a great poster here, has been a terrific resource for me in this regard. Explores what is myth vs tall tale and leads me to further info to evaluate.
My question is whether or not you are familiar with -perhaps spoken with - Richard Dewhurst? I found him to be of your respective qualities - well researched and interesting stories to tell. Amazing stuff really.
