Not jealousy, Bruce. You are dead wrong. Not a difference of
opinion anymore either. Again, you're wrong. Denegration of my
position or status? Hardly. The field of Ufology is litered with
sheep and surrounded by egos. I think for myself, something the
CSICOP cult wishes people like me didn't do (and I'm sure some
Ufologists do too), because it interferes with their Third-
Reich-style agenda.

Do you really think I give a damn about a perceived status
position? I don't. Anyone who knows me either hates my guts or
appreciates what I contribute or at the least, can't figure out
what the hell is really going on. I really don't care, because
my contributions are laid bare for anyone to judge. Can't attack
my work, be CSICOPian and attack me. That's OK. I am the wicked
witch of Ufology and proud of it. Why? Because I don't give a
hoot about political correctness when it comes to the pond scum
that sucks the life from the freedom to think, research, believe
and dream and does so under the bogus guise of legitimate
science that the CSICOP Hive spews.

CSICOP acts like the pond scum. A bogus scientific organization,
Bruce. CSICOP proclaims legitimacy and constantly fails. I just
take a few minutes once in awhile to remind people who want to
research Ufology, without being crucified by these bottom
feeders, that the CSICOP Hive's garbage floats to the top and
suffocate the right of free thought.

The only thing I'm guilty of is doing is good research and
telling the truth. CSICOPians do nothing but opine, twist facts
and perform character assassinations in the name of bogus
science and claim legitimacy that it does not deserve or
demonstrates. CSICOP is not the savior of science. It is the
modern age reincarnation of the Spanish Inquisition. It is a
hive filled with those so-called scientists and professionals
who couldn't make the grade in real science...the mediocre,
which you find taking up space in all fields of endeavor.

A debunker that seeks out a fellow hive and cult member isn't
doing anyone a favor in regards to a legitimate source to
counter. He wasn't capable of defending the CSICOP
position...too much of a marshmellow with a mouth, to do so.
But, I understand that it was appropriate that he needed to run
to his father figures and whine that he doesn't like this wicked
witch impugning the CSICOP Cult. Btw, as far as CSICOPs
unprofessionalism, I don't need to act professionally in dealing
with it. Quid pro quo. I'm espousing my own opinion regarding
the fanaticism of CSICOP as I perceive it and that's freedom of
thought and expression. Like CSICOP, I will use professionalism
or acerbic, hatchet humor and taunts wherever I feel it is
appropriate to do so and which allows for the best understanding
of my position. I'm in the arena regarding a bogus, illegitimate
and downright fanatical cult. Choice of weapons I use in my
battle are my privilege.

Oh, please. I don't care what others think of my persona, only
on the quality of my work and contributions. Ufology isn't a
popularity contest and I'm not in it to win a crown... for those
who know me, they know this to be true: that I'm only impressed
with their work and contributions and not their perceived
status. Ufology is a legitimate course of study and research and
the quality of work is what is important, not the personality of
the person doing it. Don't lecture me in the typical CSICOPian
manner. You waste your time.

Regards back,

Wendy Connors
