Yes I have heard it. Online and offline, though I can't find anything online to show you that isn't in a friends-only journal or members-only forum.
I should point out that this wasn't a hit at you or anyone else you know. I only know you from your website but I know you haven't been as ignorant to make claims of this kind.
What I was trying to say is it's really the people who have done little research of their own who misunderstand and claim "Well So-and-So said this" or "this is the only way to do something". People get hung about A's way to cut hose or B's way to make French Hoods, getting hung-up on the person, rather than the research that person did.
And so many people use info out of all context. EG extrapolating from construction in 1560s Florence, say, to 1620s Buckinghamshire. Which is just mad!
Sorry, I'm rambling again. Anyhow, no offence meant :)
