    It is crystal clear that all articles written in this website under this author name are not the author’s write ups. I have read all the articles by this “author”. After reading it is clear, no writer will spoil the quality of his excellently written articles with stupid and insipid finishing lines that this and that “are surely going to….blah blah. Perhaps they hire writers under them at cheap rates and use their works as their own. Shame.
