Thank you for your kind abuse.

It was in fact your web sites on Proto-World (though I think you called it
Nostratic back then?) that hellped to get me back into historical
linguistics some years ago, and I will always be grateful to you for that.
It was realising how deeply flawed they were, that made me concentrate on
what we can know. There is of course a valid place for the sort of
suggestions you make, but - in my informed opinion - they must remain
suggestions only, and not be accorded the kind of academic respectability
you are seeking to give them.
