LOL! But I doubt she commanded armies.

Please don’t take statements out of context! There’s a reason I have that
statement in quotes, and there is a reason that I immediately followed it
with a clarification, and that reason should have been clear, namely that I
do not condemn consensus per se, rather that consensus that contradicts data
is not good. As such, there is no characterizing the majority of scholars as
scoundrels. So don’t read into the text what is not there.
