Meta, please note that I never suggested you were lying. I simply asked how it was possible for someone from a Philosophy Department that doesn't now exist to write that you're the greatest debater since Socrates. You've provided the explanation that the Philosophy Department had been removed from the University of Swansea some years ago, and this person "from the University of Swansea" was really just a graduate assistant. Well, that explains it then.

So a graduate assistant, (in a Philosophy Department, from a University in Wales, that has since removed the entire department from the curriculum), who at the time he wrote you had no advanced degree, was so impressed with your debating ability (this was apparently discovered on line, right..?) wrote and told you that you were the greatest thing in debate since sliced bread. Well, now I see why you wanted to share those kudos with the rest of us. Very impressive.
