Since you are too slow to understand, I'll explain it.
Please do, but that was a needless shot in my opinion.
The quote above is useless because it's just all the information as you posted before. A lot of your quotes that you post on here and other topics is what I mean. Different wording but same thing.
Generally speaking and for the sake of argument here, in my experience even slightly different wording can sometimes make all the difference. Or in this case, even just reading CJRT in his own words might make a notable difference compared to paraphrasing him.
Or maybe having two or three quotes about the same thing might help illustrate that Tolkien wasn't changing his mind about something, as he does at times, and makes the point even stronger.
Choice of word or phrasing matters: like for instance '100% identical' is not the same thing as 'indistinguishable to other peoples'.
Also some of your quotes just beat around the bush, therefore it's useless. You may think it makes you look intelligent, but in reality it's the opposite.
Maybe these quotes that you think just beat around the bush say something quite direct. In any case I don't think posting citations makes me look intelligent, no matter what you think they say or don't say.
Don't even ask which ones there are too many. This isn't a lie, it's the truth. Didn't want to make you feel bad or anything, just wanted a better debate next time. So next time you think someone is writing personal remarks then most likely that is the reason.
A better debate... but next time. And your version of the truth is noted.
So to answer you. No. The debate is too redundant now.
So again you do not answer with respect to which statements from Appendix A Durin's Folk you seemingly feel represent Gimli lying in order to preserve secrecy... which would not be that redundant actually, as unless I've forgotten something you haven't noted much in the way of specific statements yet, if any.
Or if that's not your position, were you just making a general point with your earlier statement: 'Therefore we don't know if anything Gimli said in Appendix A was the truth.'
Anything? Brego believes Dwarf-women have beards for example, do you? Do you agree that it's true that Dwarf women are relatively few in number, for a different example?
If you want to drop out here, fine of course. If at some point you want to note which parts of Durin's Folk you seemingly think are lies (at least so far you haven't denied this notion in general), then my question still stands.
