Dear Katharina et al.,

I would like to thank all of you for your thoughts in this matter.

Like you, I have been appalled at the rancour and viciousness
that occasionally have been displayed on this List, particularly
towards Jim Mortellaro. It amazes me that such attacks come,
not from a debunker, but from within the community.

The resulting damage has been significant, not only to the
persons involved, but to this List and to ufology as a whole.

It is a sad commentary on the state of ufology when experiencers
are driven away from a premier List such as this.

I hope that the situation improves in good measure.

I for one regret being deprived of your input on this most
serious and puzzling phenomenon of abduction.

Virginia Davey
