Hi Greg,

That's my whole point. There is no harm. I think Art Bell, John
Velez, Budd Hopkins, etc. should all be free to say what ever
they think is of interest to their audience without fear of
"paying a price" (as long as there is no _intent_ to cause
harm). The notion that Art Bell is responsible (even partly) for
the Heaven's Gate suicides is ludicrous.

I think the definition fits nicely. Thanks for including it. Do
you have a specific disagreement with it?
