UFO Public Nuisance Hall of Fame - Final Tally

From: "Charles T. Oliphant III" <alkahest@slip.net>
Date: Sun, 29 Mar 1998 04:27:11 -0800
Fwd Date: Sun, 29 Mar 1998 10:07:40 -0500
Subject: UFO Public Nuisance Hall of Fame - Final Tally

THE UFO PUBLIC NUISANCE HALL OF FAME is a JOKE! The idea is to
keep it running long enough until EVERYBODY in the whole field of
UFOs is listed. Then we all can have a laugh at the nominees, and
ourselves!

THE UFO PUBLIC NUISANCE HALL OF FAME is also an Internet Poll,
where people can voice their complaints about others, without
fear of retribution. This tends to allow everyone to speak their
mind openly.
All nominations and votes are posted anonymously so nobody knows
who voted. (With one exception-Ed)

THE UFO PUBLIC NUISANCE HALL OF FAME is a reference list where
people can find documents and articles about those
nominated/voted for. This final March 29, 1998 tally includes
hyper links to the URLs describing those nominated.

A NOTE TO THOSE NOMINATED:
The microphone is always on, tape is always running and the
cameras are always recording what's being observed. RUST NEVER
SLEEPS!

THE FINAL TALLY: Culled from 264 reporting precincts...

THE WINNER!

Steven (CSETI) Greer                                13 nominations

http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/2466/index.html
http://n6rpf.com-us.net/PAM/
http://n6rpf.com-us.net

For: "Today, CSETI's Doc Stevie Greer (when he's not double-crossing and
pissing off every fellow UFOlogist under the sun, or alienating his
one-time rich sugar daddy, Laurance Rockefeller) "vectors in the
friendly Space Brothers" with powerful flashlights, group
meditations/visualizations and other Highly Scientific Procedures
such as "Koch-Kyborg" pyramidal visualizations or "Coherent Thought
Sequencing." - Prof. Blue.

(This guy's antics have ruined the idea of UFO research in the minds of
America's most influential and wealthy families. He's left an indelible
bad taste in the mouths of many who could've been a great asset to
UFOlogy. -Ed)

Richard (Revoked license) Boylan                    12 nominations

http://www.metaterra-link.com/starfamily.html
http://www.marsweb.com/~watcher/uforocke.html

For: "Countless un-verified claims, and accusations against those who
disagree with him"

(I have to say this guy must reap what he's sown. Several years ago
Boylan came to one of my lectures and soon afterward began posting
Internet messages claiming I was a government agent. Last year when I
put out requests for videos/film of UFOs, Boylan posted more Internet
messages warning that anybody who cooperated with me would  be visited
by the Men In Black or agents of the alphabet companies. I went to one
of Boylan's lectures a few months ago and he again proved himself to be
deserving of his nomination to The UFO Public Nuisance Hall Of Fame.
