Ditto. It really serves no useful purpose for some List members
here, such as Greg, Kathy Kasten, and a few others, to dangle
these kinds of hints, implications, or other unsubstantiated
stories and information without backing them up with verifiable
documentation, sources, or other means to further investigate
and vet them.

I mean, what does that accomplish? Simply more dissension,
dispute, and request for substantiation that those who choose
not to provide it, for various previously stated but rather
specious reasons, seem to want to suggest is not possible or
safe for public distribution. If that's the case, then why make
unsubtantiated or questionable claims, assertions, or nebulous
contentions without supporting facts or data in the _first_
place?_

To do so seems kind of pointless and automatically gives rise to
legitimate doubt of such claims, when those who promote them say
they're too secret to discuss or to provide backing data about.

Otherwise, such statements on the part of a minority of List
members here will continue to be subject to perpetual
skepticism, argument, and looked upon as more likely false than
true when no foundation of fact or sources is provided. Frankly,
that is becoming both boring and silly, IMHO.

Extraordinary claims in fact do require extraordinary evidence,
or proof of some kind, or why should anyone here believe what is
claimed without adequate substantiation one might use to check
such contentions? To do so is deceptive and disinformational in
nature, at the very least. It could also be termed other things,
but which for now I will defer mentioning or expressing further
opinion or speculation about.


Sincerely,

Steve
