I hope it stays open so all the stuff piling up here can have some
place to. Yes you heard me.

You call your friends continued name calling and insults "communication"?

Your battered friend. :-) There ARE NO excuses for the flaming
Linda has been doing on this list since she started posted. She
flames anyone who does not agree with her and calls then names.

We are lucky to see how dysfunctional Hopkins support groups are I
guess. As denial seems to be the BIG red flag of both you and

We "crack pots" don't shine shoes. Weesss from the Noth.

When Linda starts communicating like an ADULT them maybe she might
be taken seriously.

Sorry John, I don't drink and I do NOT have coffee with people who
make nasty below the belt pot shots at people I happen to like.

What I have noticed is you people have a real tight group and
there seems to be a "tude" that it is "you all against the world".
Sorry that is not the case. When I come in here and start reading
the childish name calling messages posted by Hopkins main
attraction, I say something. That is not what this List is for.
This is NOT IUFO, and Linda is not Rich Boylan.

As for the people on this List, why don't you take a poll and see
how many have left, or just stopped posting messages because they
are tired of putting up with Linda's childish rants. As well as
asking everyone how they like the continued rants of Linda.

If anyone questions her about her abduction she blasts them. If
they say they do not believe it happened she flames the crap out
of them. Now if you all think you are going to play censorship on
everyone in this List, you are wrong. Because that is exactly what
you are trying to pull. And it just is not going to happen.

As for Hopkins he does NOT do valid objective research PERIOD.
Does that make him a bad person no. Did he give out the film Linda
is wasting bandwidth about YES. What this means is Hopkins is the
one responsible for Linda's son being in the public eye. So
instead of wasting bandwidth trying to take the focus OFF the
person who let the video out. Maybe she needs to go to Hopkins and
call him, a user and pest, or a crack pot. That way the rest of us
can get back to some meaningful discussion.
