  Don I must apologize because I have not read those threads
between you and Linda. And if that is the case then you are
right. That would be rude.

 I know from interviewing people in the field they do not react
well to not being believed and more often than not react
negatively and not always fairly to questions of not being
accurate in their reports. Even if we are sincere in our
disbelief of their case.

  It's hard not to be hurt by harsh words when we know there are
other options in the way we express ourselves.

  Unfortunately Don I don't have public proof to give you. I can
only say that I used my own personal resources to attempt to
verify Linda's story for myself. Given that, I loose your
argument. You have every right to not believe a persons story,
especially if it is based on the data you have gathered.

  As a friend of Linda's, I'm not here to prove her story, nor do
she and I agree on everything. I'm sorry I can't present
verifiable evidence as per your request. But then, that's usually
the case for a lot of reports.

  Would it be alright if we agree to disagree.
