Torsten's mind), and why the Massagetae were neither Gothic nor
Getic, and not to be analysed folk-etymologically as "massa-geta-"

I searched "getae" on the list and read your postings; unfortunately
without finding the reasons why you think the Getae and the Goths
were different peoples. Would you mind directing me to the relevant
postings or possibly restate your reasons here?
