No, be comforted!  Tom is referring to Mike Adams's peculiar style, I think, like
his use of "lingo" for "language" and his habit of writing in oblique sentence
fragments.

We've asked him repeatedly to quote the material he's referring to, and he never
does.  I can only conclude that he's not interested in engaging in a dialogue
with anyone else on the list, but is content merely to add cryptic footnotes to
other people's discussions.  To each his own...
