Martin,

I was not criticizing your post, in which you address the
article by McGaha and Nickell. I was criticizing the article
itself! I have no issue with the fact that you had raised and
addressed the issue of their article about Exeter.

I recall that you and I have 'crossed sabers' on at least one
occasion in the past, but this is, by no means, a repeat of that
exchange!
