Stuff and nonsense, Mr. Hutchinson. Mr. Young thought he was
going to get the big gun and use him in the fray of the debate.
In as much as it pretty effectively backfired on him because
Robert Sheaffer's aggregate argument was so weak he still has to
pay the freight for invoking him.

More stuff and nonsense, Mr. Hutchinson. Mr. Young was
deliberately insulting, did everything but call her a liar, and
was _far_ from merely inquisitive about a comment that the
commenter finally, although insipidly, admitted that he made!

 >scathingly rebuke skeptics/debunkers for not seeking out

Still _more_ stuff and nonsense. Even _if_ unprofessional (which
it was not) it was well deserved. Robert Sheaffer added
_nothing_ to the debate but ad hominum of his own - or maybe you
missed the comments regarding intelligence and competency. This
is forgetting Mr. Young's production of same. Scrape the scales
from _your_ eyes.

Stuff and nonsense to the last... She's _advanced_ her cause,
engineered Robert Sheaffer out of his cloistered woodwork and
into UpDates for debate, and put a little more illumination on
an alleged and suspect 'bastion' of light -- CSICOP. We are
_well_ served!

Thank _YOU_, Ms. Conners!
