Thanks to All for the comments. Bearing them in mind, I suggest
a minimalist approach.

Any Lister, or friend-of, with a web-site can put a panel on
their page(s), titled 'Deceptive Debunkers' or something like
that - so when a case occurs and is posted on the List, we can
all simply enter the details on our web-pages, like so -
(hypothetical entry - he already confessed)

"J.A Hynek Ph D, speaking for the USAF, apparently thinks
'swamp-gas' can perfectly imitate a fairground carousel for
hours on end, fly at 300 mph etc., freely relocate to other
places while steadily illuminating both itself and the
surrounding area."

I don't remember the real details - just made that up - with
links to the most accurate Press reports, or our own reports.

In other areas have found that cover-ups and deflections of
public concern are usually achieved by the guilty parties,
simply by inserting what looks like an 'instant rebuttal' in the
media and relying on our faulty human memory to create the
impression that 'Oh yes - that was all solved wasn't it'.

What they really don't want is the full facts kept in the public
mind, with the ridiculousness of those 'explanations' exposed and
preserved for all to see.

If we keep it short, sharp and truthful, with no digressions into
rants or private feuds etc, think it can serve as a just
puniishment and a warning to others. Scientists tend not to want
their name associated with ridicule in the public mind.
