What is disappointing about it all is that Paul has amassed a considerable amount of data, but few of those who plaigarize that information, move beyond it to blend it with additional solid research. In other words, they don't move the lineage forward or backward in time. They just make claims and use his documentation to support whatever they want.
So true! This is why with my research on FPOC in NC that I don't even use secondary sources for my research. I did when I first started my research while in school, but not anymore. Paul's books helped me get started, but if I've ever taken something from the books for my research papers, etc. I make sure to cite the source fully and give Paul his due credit for it. If people think I do good research or bad research, I want it to be because of research I did, not research that I copied from someone.
