If you claimed the author says Z, that would be deceptive.
I agree. That's why I wrote:
When author 'A' writes 'X', it is incorrect to say 'A' wrote 'Z'.
Marwan, et al. assign my name to their 'random' concept. That is saying that I said that. I'm glad you agree they are deceptive. We're finally making some progress.
BTW, that is what they say also when people like Hagelstein use my paper as part of the 'look what bad stuff happens to you if you do CF' section of his MIT 'class', or when McK write the silly response he gave me some time back on this forum, or when Ed says today that no one ever pointed out an error to him.
