Mr. Young, with apologies to patient and gentle listfolk:

Oh, for crissake.  If you must persist, why don't you go back to
the Jerry Black screed which you entered this discussion to
second, and then explain to us (1) why you chose to defend it
and (2) why you believe, as Black does, that personal
denunciations of ufologists are an acceptable method of
discourse? While you're at it, you can tell us why the objects
of those slanders have no right to respond in righteous anger --
in other words, why you prefer to blame the victims for the

You could also try to explain the issue you're so uncleverly
trying to obfuscate here: namely, why the other listfolk who
remarked on our exchange had no difficulty understanding what I
was talking about when I objected to the personality-centered
approach you and your friends (including the amusingly unmasked
"Terry Evans") have either regaled us with or apologized for.

Allow me to remind you again of the word "disingenuous," and
then to urge you to find something more interesting to
contribute to the list.  Aren't you supposed to be a big
investigator or something?  How about postings about actual UFO
cases you've studied?
