Misattribution in a Signature over on the Troll Lords forums

Over on the Troll Lords forums here a poster by the name of Sieg has this is in his signature 


Always remember, as a first principle of all D&D: playing BtB is not now, never was and never will be old school.- Tim Kask, Dragonsfoot
Great quote, just one problem, Tim Kask did not say that, I did.

Go to Q&A with Tim Kask page 2 and scroll down to my first post dated Wed May 02, 2007 6:43 am
and read down the page from there to a post by Tim Kask (Wed May 02, 2007 8:57 pm. Towards the end of that post he quotes me and reply's: 

Forty-eight years of marriage and we were playmates as babies.
Mein Gott! You must be older than dirt... And I thought I was one of the senior old fogies in gaming...
 My words above are in Italic and his are not.

Then he quotes my signature on DF and posts his agreement with it as follows again I am putting my words in Italic and his are not:


Quote:
Always remember, as a first principle of all D&D: playing BtB is not now, never was and never will be old school. Old school D&D involves house rules and at least some flying by the seat of the pants, making it up as you go.

Rules lawyers have missed the heart and soul of old school D&D.

Tim Kask replied: Truer words were never spake.

Sieg was also posting in that DF thread, but I am not sure why he misattributed the quote, but if anyone is currently a member of DF and/or Troll Lords and knows Sieg please bring it to his attention. Please note that I do not think it was deliberate.
