Maybe we should go over it, again, reading your words slowly. On
June 3rd on this list you wrote:

 >>>In other words CSICOP doesn't do first hand investigations.

 >By saying that I have deliberately changed his words,

Well, you failed to include any citation, or even a footnote to
indicate that eventually a citation would follow, so all anyone
could do is quote your words.

We could just save a lot of time so that we can get back to
investigating the UFO question if you would please provide the
complete paragraph and citation where,

 >>>Robert Shaeffer, a CSICOP Committee Member
 >>>demonstrates though his own words, that CSICOP is not
 >>>a scientific organization.

because it,

 >>>doesn't do first hand investigations.

Clear skies,

Expect no further word or sign
from me.
Your own will is whole,
upright, and free
and it would be wrong not to do
as it bids you,
therefore I crown and miter
you over yourself.
