Hi, Josh — name’s Anthony, don’t think we’ve had the pleasure yet.
Thanks for the article, I just finished it. I’m a friend of Tim Denning’s, and I wanted to humbly yet firmly affirm Tim would never plagiarize like this — I can say from personal experience Tim’s an authentic, considerate, respectful writer who would never plagiarize another writer. I’m 100% certain any similarities were purely coincidental, which you graciously considered to be a possibility.
I think it’d be very productive if you two talked personally about this, he’s a great guy and would love to chat. I’m sure that would remove any doubt that he never plagiarized anything. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again. Take care!
