Martin. Look rather than make such a snide comment, why don't
you actually tell us what you consider elitist about a group
that is literally open to anyone to join (which rather
contradicts elitism), or that displays certainty and dismissal
of doubt (when I sure as heck don't know what UFOs are and I'm
part of UFOIN), or is lacking in humility, since none of us are
promising to change the world simply to do as good a job as we
can of R & I and publish it freely for everyone to do as they
will with our findings. What we are doing is bonding as a team
not claiming to be better than anybody else. What makes you
think that we are suggesting that?

Please point out where we have said that we have all the answers
because I don't see it in the statement and I know I certainly
don't have them. That's why we are still looking!

This is a serious request for a detailed reply. Please explain
your feelings as we are trying to do this UFOIN project right
and your opinion does matter.

Best wishes,

Jenny Randles
