Hi Amy

I, like you, never said "dismiss the photo", but I have noticed
when I question how one has come to a conclusion I too got asked
if I was biased toward abductees because maybe I'm the type who
thinks an abductee can't make an objective comment or an
observation because they're an abductee?

That comment "biased towards abductee's kinda cut deep with me
and I did not take it lightly but John you made your point".

John, I have the guts to ask questions about another persons
opinion and research be they an abductees the best UFO
book writer or the best in their own mind UFO researchers
in the world and I will continue to do so.

Opinion: a belief, attitude or view point. Each and everyone on
this List has a right to an opinion and the right to express
ones own opinion.

"What have some forgotten? in my opinion! the common thread that
ties us all together "we are all researching the unknown" some
may think they have all the answers and if they do I'm happy to
listen to what they have to say... but be warned there are many
on this list and on others lists that will ask you to "please
explain" and if you take offence to being asked to explain, well
what can I say "that's research" :>)

Amy you have done a wonderful job, so don't let the buggers get
you down. Unfortunately there is the tall poppy syndrome at work
and some researchers tend to think they are better than others.

Amy I'm not going to give this thread anymore unless I can see
more evidence appear and for now I personally feel as Frank what
more can be said or done.

Thank you Amy and all and may I make state this final point
"please don't forget where some of you came from and who put you

A best selling UFO book doesn't move off the shelf on its own
someone on this list took the time to buy one. :>)
