Just out of interest, Roy, why all the mystery surrounding this
"friend of FSR"? They sound just like one of those "anonymous
sources" which so much of ufology is dependent on to create a
good yarn.

I couldn't possibly tell you, I'd be breaking the OSA if I did.

I used my remote viewing ability, and divined that the following
is actually a quote by me from December 2002, see:

Well, friend of FSR (if that is your real name), I am terribly
sorry if I don't happen to accept everything that is printed in
FSR as divine truth. I realise that this amounts to blasphemy
(or is it heresy?) and if tried and found guilty I will be
stoned to death, but Allingham and Adamski don't meet my
sceptical benchmarks for factual ufology (though Roy would
appear to support a different view). That is not to say that
they aren't highly entertaining stories, or that FSR does not
contain some factual articles in it. The same is true of most
(if not all) journals on the topic of ufology.

Perhaps you would prefer me not to promote FSR?


Regards,

Joe
