Certainly no threat. Just a subtle admonition for someone who I
perceive as a stone-throwing, glass-house-dweller.

Thanks. Perhaps I misunderstood and could impose on you for a
clarification. I got the impression that you felt Art should
"pay a price" for reporting on something that he thought was an
interesting discovery. (The fact that some individuals took the
information a little too seriously and made some questionable
decisions based on that information seems, to me, to be no fault
of Art's.) Is _that_ what you think he should "pay a price" for?

Do you feel that you or Mr. Hopkins should "pay a price" for
propagating the alien abduction meme and all the associated harm
that it causes?

Is this another example of the kind of warm empathy and human
compassion that the 'recently probed' can look forward to from
the Intruder Foundation? Quite revealing indeed.

Non-threateningly Yours,
