Previously, Peter offered this insight into Robert Stephens:

>Mr. Stephens was able to fool us for over 80 days.  Shame on us.

I am stunned.

If you have been reading this list at all, I think you'll find
that virtually NO ONE took Stephens seriously, much less thought
of him as a 'savior'. His "swordsmanship", as you put it, was so
severely lacking that even most armchair ufologists didn't even
give him a second thought. The fact that _you_ were fooled
doesn't mean that the majority was also. With all due respect,
Mr. Gersten, you need to speak for yourself. The picture you
paint is one of justification for your own gullibility and you
can leave me out of it.

I see no lesson to be learned here at all. To attribute such a
thing to Stephens gives him far more credit than he deserves and
affords you too convenient a cushion for your fall from reason.

Later,

Roger Evans
