Why would you link us to an article that steals its introduction
word-for-word from Wikipedia?  There might be some oblique logic that I'm
missing, here, but I'm not sure that it would be worth the gambit of

Terrance Lindall, can you argue, in straightforward logic, a support of
your now repeated stealing of other authors' words, without credit given,
without quotation marks?  With your name attached, in both cases?

It is beyond doubt that you are a serial plagiarist.  What is your
defense?  Logical, straightforward argument: please.
