    For my part, I do not take to being called a liar, which is how
    I interpret the above.
    Perhaps we should re-examine how we got to this point.
    On December 23, in response to a posting by Rodney Myrvaagnes, I wrote:

    That was a direct claim that, 30 to 40 years ago, calculations could be
    done that allowed someone to "really know" what a tidal barrage would do
    to tidal amplitudes. I certainly understand "really knowing" what a
    barrage would do to the amplitudes as being synonymous with being able
    to generate "quite precise" estimates. How else could my words be
    Are we now to understand that you are withdrawing your original claim?
    Or do you propose to offer some way of splitting hairs so as to contort
    your meaning into something that you are willing to stand by?
