Funny that you preface your post with this, and then proceed to type up an extremely rude response. Why are you so surprised when that behavior is reciprocated by me?

So you finally read it after I posted it twice already? I just don't get it; if you don't care to read my posts, and admit it won't change your mind regardless, why were you so insistent on getting my interpretation?

What do these receipts show? What is on them? Has he ever shown these receipts to anyone, or scanned and uploaded them on the web? That would have been proof. Not his word, which is already worth less than mud, considering even you admitted he lied about three critical points in his video;
* Yes, Mitchell and Wiebe actually played one another head to head in a live setting, a year before the documentary.
* Yes, Wiebe was actually recognized as a world record holder.
* And finally yes, Mitchell's tape was actually legitimate.
That's three major plot points, all making Mitchell look bad, that were falsehoods.

No. he's obviously not.
Oh? Care to explain why you believe that?
Right now, we have already proved that the filmmaker Gordon has lied on three separate occasions. Even the other people in this topic arguing against me and in favor of the work write that it was "clear exaggeration" in the best case.
And yet, you take his word over the word of multiple ordinary folks with no reason to lie, and no proof that they have ever been dishonest?
You've already made up your mind, and are distorting the facts to fit them, not the other way around.

Ok, so Wiebe does it again, life with audience. Then Billy sends his own tape. Ergo, Billy is a douche because he contradicts his own words by sending a tape.
I don't remember Billy ever complaining about Wiebe breaking his record by tape in the documentary. Rather, he states that live play is an important component in addition to the actual record games on VHS. This is in the context of his now friend Steve Sanders, who claimed he got 3 million on Donkey Kong in the early 1980s, but couldn't even crack 300,000 when playing against Billy in real life.
If you believe otherwise, link me to the relevant part of "The King of Wrong" on Youtube.
