This is the last time I will respond. You aren't worth the time,
and you have nothing valid to contribute to this discussion nor,
it seems, to any discussion that involves adults talking to each
other using logic and reason.

For those of you who are exhausted from coping with Lehmberg's
verbal morass to find a semblance of fact within the mud-
slinging, this is where I stand on this situation:

1. 'Emma Woods' is a deceiver. She posted messages supporting
herself in our forums (and elsewhere I understand) under a fake
name, other than the fake name she is already using. Wearing the
mask of anonymity, she has turned herself into a celebrity of
sorts as the alleged abused victim, with a Web site, thousands
of e-mails, message board posts, magazine articles, and radio
appearances.

Before that happened the woman who calls herself 'Emma Woods'
didn't exist in the world at large. None of this means that she
wasn't somehow mistreated by someone who lives thousands of
miles away, someone she's never met, and only communicated with
by phone, email, or Internet chats. As I said, she appears smart
enough to know that you can end a conversation by hanging up the
phone, and you can stop communicating in writing by not putting
her fingers on the keyboard,or holding a pen or pencil in your
hand.

Was she somehow mentally abused by Jacobs? That's for mental
health professionals or the courts to determine, and so far, the
authorities she's contacted have given her complaints a huge
thumbs down.

2. I do not support the conclusions expressed by Jacobs about
alien hybrids. As I wrote elsewhere, I am not persuaded by the
value of hypnotic regression to recover lost memories of
possible missing time events (though I suppose it's useful as an
instigative tool with proper controls), and I certainly worry
about attempting to hypnotize someone by phone, since you cannot
observe physical reactions. I also feel that Jacobs should have
avoided the 'Woods' issue altogether, and I have concerns about
the therapist in New Zealand who suggested in the first place
that she seek help from laymen abduction researchers in the U.S.

Now can we actually get back to UFO research for a change
rather than this maddening soap opera?
