What about Jane Austin, the British novelist and car manufacturer?

@Lustig Andrei,
And what of his alter ego Denis Healey?

Well, as far as I can see (it's hot here, and maybe I'm missing something) that is as good a way as any of bringing the running joke to a crashing halt - "Samuel Clements", "Steven Hawkins", and "Jane Austin" being widely perpetrated misspellings of famous people's names, whereas "Denis Healey" is the correct spelling of a (real, 95 years old) retired British politician.

@contrex,
I do beg pardon, I left off the final 'e' in Denise Healey, a fitting name, I think, for Miss Austin's alter ego. But having crashed the car, I suppose I'll walk from here.

@Debacle,
Upon her head a platted hive of straw,
Which fortified her visage from the sun,
Wherein the thought might think sometime it saw
The carcass of a beauty spent and done.


I believe that's a quote from "An Ode to the Model T."

@Lustig Andrei,
The Model T had a spark, not anode. You probably sparked in them yourself.

Would you "take any notice of someone's opinion about" anything who engages in this sort of dishonesty,

http://able2know.org/topic/217676-1#post-5383744

Would you "take any notice of someone's opinion about" anything when he continues on, making a Mt Everest out of a simple spelling mistake, instead of offering up the "expertise" he leads us to believe he acquired as a student of English literature?

And note that he has an awful lot of sidekicks willing to help him in his juvenile antics.

Here is that troll, JTT, who never contributes much to threads; he just stalks people who have trangressed his weird code in some way. Maybe I'll trawl his old posts and see what I can find that is discreditable or inconsistent. Maybe it'll make him have a "meltdown"...

Plagiarism is not just my code, Contrex. It is simply something that honest people do not do.

And you haven't even apologized. If you were to do that at work, wouldn't they toss you out on your butt for that?

What you did was stealing. Another thing that is not just my "code". It's another thing that honest people don't do.

Whereas your contributions to this thread have been very scholarly.

Nothing we write or say is original. So that makes us all plagiarists.

When we think about "codes", and admirable behaviour, let's think about the Burma Railway for a moment.

This was word for word copying [and pasting] from a medical doctor that Contrex passed off as his own. Common sense and even a minuscule sense of honesty would lead most people to also copy and paste a link.

No, I do not. Where you are concerned, disagreement is not just preferable, it is a a duty. Are you ashamed of the Burma Railway?
