    Hey Frank, you're welcome to those frivolous comments and I'm glad you enjoyed the entertainment, although I'd really prefer you to put those to one side and concentrate on these:

    * If you have some evidence relating to this 1720 date then cough it up
    * Where is your research?
    * From what platform of information does this opinion arise?
    * What do you know about the presence of specific diseases in different Indonesian islands in particular centuries?

    In this case an absence of .. justification .. for your assertions apparently amounts to proof of absence of any foundation for putting them forward, it would appear.

    "Do you just make up this stuff as you go along?"

    And you wrote:
    "similar opinions to yours with no basis at all for their suppositions (and that were, incidentally, self-serving, just like yours)."

    Thanks, Peter. Fascinating points, as always.
