Dear list,

For reasons unknown I can't get into Paul Devereux's
recent posting, so I'm having to respond in an independent

I guess the good news is that there is so little of substance
in it, beyond Paul's by now well-worn ax-grinding act, that
little comment is warranted.  Suffice it to say I stand by
everything I've said.  To Paul I'd simply say that your
emotional -- even fanatical -- commitment to a particular
reading of the UFO question has apparently led you to
chronic incivility, as not a few others, even individuals
more sympathetic to your beliefs than I am, have noted.  In
other words, guy: chill out.  Not all, or even most, dissents
from your treasured beliefs are personal attacks.  By now
we've all figured out that you are VERY excited with and
defensive about your beliefs, that angry bees are always
circling in your bonnet.  You don't have to keep
demonstrating it to the rest of us.

As for me, I tried to be as pleasant as I could under the
circumstances, to no avail, evidently.  So you can go
stew elsewhere, Paul.

An excellent essay on "Earthlights and Tectonic Stress
Theory," by Chris Rutkowski, appears in the forthcoming
second edition of my UFO Encyclopedia.  I encourage all
who are interested in what Paul's about, beyond all the
self-righteous bluster, to read it.
