Greetings, Steve Jones:

Are you the same Steve Jones that is so much in love with
himself that has difficulty writing a sentence without the word
"I" in it?  Are you the same Steve Jones that plotted with
Richard Boylan to invade my privacy and to go through my trash
cans? Are you the same Steve Jones that lied to Joe Ball and got
him from your then BBS to threaten myself and family causing me
to file a petition in court for a restraining order, the results
of which were a signed confession by Joe Ball that you were the
instigator of the whole affair? Are you the same Steve Jones
that was ostricised from the Sacramento UFO Group (SUFOG),
kicked out for life from the FIDONET UFO discussion group by the
then owner and moderator and from John Powell's BAMA UFO
discussion groups? Are you the Steve Jones that has lost most of
his friends in the UFO field, including posters to this list
such as Clark Hathaway, because of your insidious lies and
fabrications? I believe you are!

Steve Jones, throughout the 90s and before, has been an
automobile service order writer writing up repair service orders
when people bring in their cars for checkups. That is how he
makes a living and how he comes to the UFO field.

I first met Steve Jones during the time that Richard T. Miller
(author of Star Wards published by the Solar Cross Foundation
and known hoaxer from the 1950s) was promulgating another hoax:
An underground alien site in the Plumas National Forest in
Northern California back in 1992.  Steve Jones has a reputation
around the Sacramento area: "I never heard a UFO story I didn't
like". Steve Jones was a supporter of Richard T. Miller.

Why don't you be a little bit more honest. You without any kind
of medical training have convinced alleged abductees to be
placed under hypnosis and under control by you and inflicted
trauma on them yourself. I still have the video tapes given to
me by Chris Stratten that visually show the type of
"investigator" you are.

>I have three very close friends who

I don't know of anyone that at one time was a "close friend" of
Steve Jones in Sacramento that still is. The only exception may
be Richard Boylan.

Blah, blah, blah! Tell your acquaintance Michael Christol, who
posts to this list, about it. You know, the guy that travelled
all the way to California from Kentucky to see the UFOs you
alleged to be observing everyday with your alcoholic friend.
Only to find out on arrival that the alleged UFOs were shy and
didn't want to be noticed by far away strangers.

Why don't you tell the list about your support for Richard
Boylan and your real feelings?

Before it happens, people on this list and especially abductees
and experiencers, need to know what you Steve Jones is all
about. You are without a doubt about the worst thing that can
happen to an abductee/experiencer. Caveat Emptor.
