I posted my Review parts 7 & 8 too soon. I have since added to the post a detailed discussion of what Xenophon was doing with his Cyrus figure: — specifically, I have added Tomas Hägg’s analysis that I think is correct: the work is not history even by ancient standards. I also think what Xenophon was doing with Cyrus the evangelists were doing with the Jesus figure, only in a different medium or genre.

. . .

One more thing, on another matter:

    I have had about two dozen emails indicating a [New Comment] which were clearly spam over the last six weeks or so.

    Same here, and I think they were all commenting on one of the Litwa part 1 posts.

    Vridar has recently been targeted for some sort of spam attack. We are being hit with loads of spam that normally gets filtered out and I worry that sometimes when we delete all of that stuff it is easy to delete a legit comment caught up in it all.

    So if you think a comment has not got through for no good reason do let us know.

    We (Tim, the tech guy I mean) are trying to figure out how to at least cut off the spam going out to commenters. I don’t know what’s happened or why we are having this “spam attack” now.

    But if you do get spam that appears to be related to a vridar comment do please continue to either email Tim or me directly or simply add a comment here.
