Hmm... I don't recall Dave Clarke being implicated in the Blue
Hare hoax/test/experiment/crime/blasphemous sin? Perhaps I
missed something?

>Perhaps Mr. Roberts can re-garner some of that credibility lost

I thought that was the point? He did come clean about "his
duplicity", and that's why you've got the hump?

>a researcher instead of a snarky pelicanist ideologue... be that

Am I to take it that only people that believe in alien
visitation are worthy of calling themselves researchers,
according to your credo? That seems somewhat elitist to me,
though I can see that it would be less challenging to some
people's convictions.

>as it may, your description of my small dissent as a "hate

You seem to be quite adept at "whiney histrionics and ardent
spin doctoring" yourself. Mountains and molehills come to mind,
no doubt you could expand that simple expression to a thousand
or so words...perhaps turn it into one of odd Alfred's odes.

Alfred, I doubt that Andy would take any notice, no matter who
told him to stay out of your inbox. The solution is simple,
apply a filter to your inbox if you want to play "I can't hear

For the record, I do appreciate and accept the revelation
obtained by Andy and Dave regarding the admission by Darbishire
that he hoaxed the image. On the other hand, perhaps you think
that they beat the confession out of him, in true MI5 style.
