Subject: Gersten For The Defence 

Hi All,

Hate to clutter the bandwidth with this but I just
want to expose Mr Gersten for what he is.

Mr Gersten. Any and all messages that I recieve from
you will simply be made a part of the public record.

Let's recap. So far you have offered me "rat poison".
Hang yourself with your own words!

I offered the following valid criticizm of your
'ideas' :


CAUS _can_ be a mighty force for change and enlightenment. But
not if you're going to concentrate on publishing all of that
painful New Age rubbish and wasting all your energy on "Mock
Trials" that only a few will ever see, or marketing/pimping
videotapes for Hoagland et. al. There have just _got_ to be more
productive avenues that CAUS (under your leadership) can pursue.

Just my opinion and requires no response from you Mr Attorney.

John Velez


But noooooo! A couple of hours later I get this



Just one of the many e-mails I received in response to your
negative behavior:

"...but I just wanted to comment on the recent attack made on you
and your organization on UFO UpDates by John Velez. This may be
something you are already aware of, but this individual seems to
thrive on nasty attacks on just about everybody, researchers and
abductees alike. I have witnessed many such attacks..."

And my response:

'Actually it appears John needs continuous attention. When I sent
him a personal response he found it necessary to post it in order
to obtain that attention. I have been told he has very little
self-esteem and thus the constant need to show how 'smart' he is.
It appears that, since he has little ability at being
constructiive, he must resort to being contrary...probably a
continuation of childhood conduct and sibling rivalry. He is
considered a nuisance to almost everyone in the UFO
community....that is everyone except the owner of the UpDates
list who allows his nonsense. But even that will soon be


Peter, either answer, or ignore my critique. Did you miss
'Addressing Points Raised - Directly - 101' in law school?

>When I sent him a personal response he found it necessary to post
>it in order to obtain that attention.

Nah Peter, not for "attention" - to 'expose'! My wife and my
family give me all the "attention" that I need. What I do here is
"work!" <G>

>that is everyone except the owner of the Updates
>list who allows his nonsense. But even that will soon be changing.'

Threats? Mr "Law-yer?" You've got me rolling on the floor man!

Keep 'em coming Peter, you're looking better and better baby!

John Velez ;-)
