Here is my reply to an ad hominem of Mike Sutton. For some mysterious reason this, my response, keeps vanishing from Larry Moran's blog called Sandwalk. So I decided to put it on here together with some preliminaries. Now it's back up there making for a double posting.

Preliminary comments to which I replied:
My reply from 9 August 2016:
am just exposing the many mistakes of Mike
Sutton so that other scholars know what they are talking about, when
