It is very nice of you to keep certain people up to date, especially
those who do not have computers and I say that sincerely.  In that case,
it seems more appropriate for you to intercede. However in Bruce's case
he has a computer and an Internet connection,  he is able to reposnd for
himself.

Maccabee has the time to write a response to a paper I wrote 7 years ago
AND the time to respond to the copyright paper but he cant find the time
to participate in the list first-person?  I suugest that you and Jean
quit running interfernce for Bruce and let him fight his own battles,
fact to face.  He is a big boy now.

Maybe you should get your facts straight before you open your mouth.
This has NOTHING to do with the paper on Copyright and Maccabees reply.

This is another paper I wrote many years ago. When I (BB) discovered
(just recently) that a paper I had written 7 years ago was posted on a
website, I wrote to the webmaster and asked that it be removed.  It IS a
copyrighted material, which I explained to him, and said I did not want
it reproduced without permission.  He was most gracious and removed it
from his website.

I then found the paper reproduced in its entirety and a commentray by
Maccabee intersperced. I have no problem with Maccabees commentary...he
can write all day long about it as far as I am concerned...however, I
have not given ANYONE permission to reproduce it in any form...or to
discect it.  That includes Maccabee, UPDATES and UFOMIND. (And you imply
Steve that I "should seek help" because I dont want my copyrighted
materials abused?)

It is simply a legal request.

I have asked UFOMIND as well as updates to remove my copyrighted
materials.  I would expect them to be as gracious as John Gilbert in the
UK.

BB
