CWL's Frauds & Quotation Marks

Each paragraph by Wood is between quotation marks.
Of course, in emails, an answer to an answer turns it difficult to
understand, but if you go to the original message, remember -- sentences
and paragraphs quoted are in between quotation marks, paragraph after
paragraph, each one of them.
If you still find it hard, write to me and I will send you a personal copy.
Best regards, Carlos.

I find it difficult to distinguish which of the text below is to be
attributed to Mr. Wood, and which is your own commentary. It would be
helpful it you are going to quote another source, that you do not make it
appear as though your own opinion is a continuation of their quoted
