It is customary when someone asks for a source that you give them chapter
and verse, or else your credibility sinks to zero.  That is, I asked for a
source, and you gave me zip.

Please provide your sources:  name of author, name of publisher, name of
publication, ISBN, and the like, and page number, or, at the least, a URL.

As it is, you have made a ridiculous allegation and, when asked for further
information, have supported it with broad and indefinite sources.  This
sounds to me, brother, like the sort of thing we hear plopping out of the
south ends of north-bound cows.  If you don't inhabit an agricultural area,
pray, e-mail me off-list for details.
