Roy stood on one leg, and repeated that amazing gymnastic
ventriloquist trick which he is so adept at:

Placing an entire foot in his mouth almost up to the knee-joint
whilst speaking from a different part of his anatomy he said...


>Do you believe that after 50 years of FSR being published, their

Yes, some of it does. See for instance:


>So if there is no change in your position, you still feel that
>FSR is a magazine for stories, right!

No, please re-read my post at:


>>It is not my opinion that is in question, you fell into the trap
>>of mocking one of the UKs most established UFO magazines.

I haven't stated an opinion, I stated a fact. If you are
bringing opinions into the discussion they must therefore be
your own. The fact that I stated (for at least the third time)

"On the odd occasion when a magazine presents an article as
research, the so-called research does not always stand up to

If it were an opinion, the only counter-opinion could be that :

"On the odd occasion when a magazine presents an article as
research, the so-called research does always stand up to

So, is that your opinion, or do you agree with my fact?

I know what your problem is - something does sound like a joke


and it isn't FSR. You don't like to acknowledge that you made a
fool of yourself, so you are trying to make it appear that my
remarks were deriding FSR. Go on, admit it!

>You now advocate people to subscribe to FSR, and you deserved to

>few months from your reply to my original mail.

I've already made it abundantly clear that no change of position
in regard to FSR was made by me during the period in question.
If you check the archives, you will see that I have been
actively trying to engender support for FSR since at least 6th
August 2003, see:


>And besides, aren't you a sceptic? What would a sceptic be
>doing asking people to subscribe to a Pro Humanoid Contact

Firstly, a true sceptic will consider all of the evidence, not
just what suits their pre-conceived ideas (unlike some people).

Secondly, since when did I ask you to choose my reading
material? Are you saying that only "true believers" are allowed
to see the "cosmic secrets" contained within FSR? If so, that is
a very elitist and discriminatory attitude that you have.

Thirdly, not all of the content is as you presume, perhaps you
only read the parts that are "Pro Humanoid Contact" because that
fits your preconceptions and they make you feel nice and warm

>Magazine? Am I the only person on this List who finds this odd?

Probably not, there are a few other strange people on the list
who would have trouble acknowledging what I wrote as fact, since
it would destroy their "I'm more open-minded than you" stance..

I'm sorry Roy, you are definitely beyond any help that I could
offer you.
