I want to make this very clear, and I want there to be absolutely no ambiguity about this, so I will state it very specifically:
My post last night was NOT intended to stir up the whole hornet’s nest of amateur vs. professional historians. I don’t want to get into that–we’ve beaten that poor horse to death here in the past, and we’re not going there now. This is not a broad brushstrokes sort of thing. It’s about one person and comments made by that one person.
To repeat: We are NOT going to re-open the amateur vs. professional can of worms in this discussion. Any comments that do will be deleted.Scridb filter
