    What does Mr.B mean? Failed to understand the meaning of "only by my own".

    Context:


    Mr. A: Please give us your concrete analysis on Willian's postings
    Mr. B: William's postings are invariably excellent, surpassed in quality, insight and helpfulness only by my own.

    No one has creates posts that are better except Mr. B himself. Mr. B's posts are the only ones that suprass Willaim's posts.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
