Re: highly illogical
How can you misrepresent an unreliable source? How would you know you were misrepresenting it in the first place, if you dont know what the authors meanings or intentions were to begin with
If I said "The sky is green" and you then told someone else "DrJones said the sky was purple", you would be misrepresenting me, even though what I said was not true.

Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil
Jesus was an architect previous to his career as a prophet
All of a sudden i found myself in love with the world
And so there was only one thing I could do

Re: highly illogical

What does that matter? Even if you heard fifth hand that I said "the sky is green" you'd still be misrepresenting what I allegedly said if you then in turn claimed "DrJones said the sky was purple".
