[QUOTE]Examiner cannot write with the style and knowledge of George Templeton Strong. Examiner, being a Civil War junkie, had a diary of Strong's Diary and decided to retype it and enter the names of forum participants into it and deemed himself clever. Nobody fell for the act except for J-Bay ( who might be Enquirer). What a complete waste of Enquirer's time in typing all of that narrative and entering the monikers of forum members into the proper places. Everyone saw through it. LOL. I don't know why J-Bay didn't ask Mikey and Babe to provide moral support to the thread.

Pike, you're an idiot, you're one of the wrongest men I know. How did you know Strong kept a diary during the war? I'll tell you how, I myself told you about it last week. Before that, you had no idea. You then asked me if I had George Templeton Strong's diary, and I said NO, and that I only knew he had kept one. I've never read it, I've only heard a few excerpts in documentary films. So now to make yourself look the intrepid investigator, you take information I myself gave you, and try to use it against me. In other words, you can't even criticize me without my help! How funny is that? The only thing I used from him was the quote I used at the beginning about Shiloh, with which I substituted "the forum", and that's not plaigerism because I put Strong's name at the end of the quote. I myself told you all that last WEEK--remember? When you were telling me what a great story it was and how much you enjoyed reading it? So no, I've never read Strong's diary, and I'm sure--if I HAD--it would be full of information about the battle of Ft. Meade (there was no such Civil War battle) and would have lots of information about the Boston.com sports forum. That thread was a creation of my own entirely, I plaigerized nothing. It flows out of my own mind because of my familiarity with the time period and how battles were fought. You yourself told me that, and said that "it really puts you right there.....that was a great narrative--good job." Furthermore, if you can prove this fakery, then you go get Strong's diary and quote the parts I copied. Also, what Civil War battle was the battle of Ft. Meade supposedly based on to where I could change all the names and isert forum characters? Show me that, and also show me how George Templeton Strong--a New York lawyer who never heard a shot fired in anger or served in the army--would have had access to battle reports and troop movements in real time to have put them in his daily diary for me to plaigerize 150 years later. Not to mention the fact that no batte in the war ever unfolded in that manner, nor would it have. Militarily, the story was a ridiculous fiction written for humor. The style of the thread was that of a parody of a documentary book on a battle, the likes of Steven Sears or Gordon Rhea, Strong did not write in this style, and would not have had access to the information required to do it. The interpretation breaks down at every point. Man, that thread burned you so much more than what I figured it would. This is hilarious! The more you talk about it, the more attention it gets. I love it. You're a desperate and silly man pike, and getting more entertaining by the moment. Yet another skirmish you've lost, why keep trying?
