You Are A mere Troll

Mike,

>>>"You, who claimed Pythagorus was a mere plagiarist..."

This is not exactly accurate -- I never claimed he was a mere plagiarist.

Skipping back to refresh my memory, I see that my comment was much more innocuous than you seem to think:

In a response to you, I'd paraphrased a line from the movie, Shrek; you responded to this by admonishing me for using others' material. At a later point in the same conversation, you hinted that Pythagoras was ultimately responsible for suggesting that numerical relationships rule the universe (your way of calling Alexander a plagiarist), and so I responded, quite simply, "Speaking of plagiarism, Pythagoras was a plagiarist."

The standards you required for the qualification of Alex as a plagiarist were more than sufficient to define Pythagoras' borrowing of Egyptian tables as plagiarism.













Gee, it must be really barren in here... I'm actually feeding the troll.
