It is readily apparent that both Wendy and her gallant defender
Alfred thoroughly missed the point of my post. I did not raise
any questions regarding Wendy's position on CSICOP. I only
addressed her use of ad hominum taunts, and noted the
impressions she conveys with their use.

This is not the Usenet. You can have serious disagreements here,
and debating your positions can sometimes require very firm
language. However, if feel you have to stoop to the playground
to get your points across, remember that your message may be
judged at the same level.

Wendy and/or Alfred may wish to add a coda, but I will end it
