Subject: Re: Questions for Abductees

I'm not going to even attempt to copy&paste anything
from this thread: it's just not worth the effort.

I just want to say one thing (or maybe a couple),

Firstly, I think that until John can enforce his
Abductee Investigators Code of Conduct, that
this thread is a waste of bandwidth: as Lawrie
pointed out, we've got everybody slinging mud,
with no exceptions. Some posts are just more
polite and erudite than others.

Secondly, I don't think anybody can assume
"expert" status in the abductee/abduction
field, as there is really no empirical data
on the subject, so therefore no way to
classify the incidents, and also then to
prescribe the type of investigation and/or
treatment of the abductee.

In some ways, I agree with John regarding
caution when dealing with a potential
abduction, but also with Lawrie, by saying
that we will have to consider "horses for courses":
that is, there are different approaches to various

Now, before I go off and delete this thread from
my mailbox, my final 5c worth (penny if you're
into Anglicisms):

This is a good list, with some very experienced,
influential people in various fields of Ufology:
Let's get the act together, and if necessary use
John's AIC to co-ordinate:

- abduction case reports
- abduction investigation methods
- post-abduction advice&guidance
- post-abduction treatment options
- case studies and white papers

Maybe Lawrie's right: who needs the professionals
that are often nothing more than licensed providers of
often questionable pharmaceutical products.

Hasta la vista, babies.
