Subject: Last Night's 'Strange Days... Indeed' Program


Saturday night is a big night for the paranormal.

I tuned into Errol Bruce-Knapp's 'Strange Days... Indeed' and
was treated to a jam-packed, edge of the seat thrill ride.

I had a ball! Mr. Ted Phillips was on, noted for his extensive
UFO trace cases research. Found out he was a musician and a
generally jovial gentleman of the kind of down-to-earth ( no pun
intended ) character so rare in the limelight.

He spun a very funny tale about singer Andy Williams a favorite
of my family. We got to learn also about the great state of
Missouri. Quite the music launchpad for countless stars and art
forms! ( I know, one of our ministers is from St. Louis and he
won't shut up about it.)

Also on was John Velez who talked about this List.

John, you spoke of issues I've had to deal with on a daily basis
when working for the old 'Parascope' forum on America Online.
There we covered the paranormal, conspiracies, documentation
etc. and did many a field trip and interview with some of you on
this List and celebs in other fields who had a viewpoint on the
topics. Of note, long time 'Batman' writer Doug Moench - also
known for his 'Big Book' series for DC Comics.

As John observed on the program, the often unprofessional and
disrespectful attacks on Lists, members etc., I had to deal with
on a daily basis. The amount of data that goes through this
List, that we see, is the equivalent to what I would get online,
in real time, in an hour. It was often gruelling, to say the
least. When you've 30 + people every minute expressing
themselves, those 30+ leaving and another wave coming in and out
24/7 you can see.....

We often would have tag teams of people who would appear, just
to invalidate the viewpoints of others. Many times we'd have to
set the hounds on them, and soon discovered they were part of
gangs whose agendas were threatened by any viewpoint they felt
uncomfortable with.

They would mask their screen names, but made the fatal error of
not realizing a trained writer and editor can detect the tell
tale signature - Syntax.

Yep, grammar, diction, all the goodies would pour through. That
and AOL's security procedures nailed them as well.

What was even funnier was, one day one of these jokers sent out
an email to his cronies detailing their next attack. What the
guy failed to realize is that he had included my email address
in his address window. I sat there for 2 days reading how these
knuckleheads were plotting and what they'd done in the past.
Suprised me what groups they were working for! Then I sprang it
on them. Red faces all that day! Suddenly, for about a year,
there was calm in ye old "Grassy Knoll" Chat Room.

When a person resorts to insults they immediately admit they've
run out of facts. The truth needs no anger, nor condescending
rhetoric to make its point. It's the truth.

So John Velez, don't let em' get ya' down. When people act like
that toward you and conspire against you, it only means they're
upset because you've proven yourself better than they, and they
can't stand it.


Best,

Greg
