And why is that? It is after all relevant, is it not? I thought
you were a researcher. Researching something like this involves
more than just interviewing people. Check out the history, see
how far back it goes, question the reason why there were no
lightbulb-headed creatures in the 50's or 60's. Don't just brush
aside any information that goes against your own personal
beliefs.

I am not the one with the 'missing time' of course I remember, I
also remember seeing your pictures.

The only face I can make out appears to have a black wet nose.
Do you by any chance happen to have a dog?

Debunk? Oh dear oh dear, there's always someone out there
roasting that old chestnut.

What do you consider to be 'how much evidence'?

Pictures of a camera flash reflected in glass showing nothing
more than possibly someone's dog.

Verbal accounts but nothing else to back it up.

And of course you are not interested in researching past
accounts (pre-1970's).

And when your book or books are published, I take it you will
have your name in print?

Going by what you have just stated above (and if you are to earn
the respect of others) you will go by a pseudonym or is there
any reason why what you state to others does not apply to you?

This is a very good question, since your private mail to me
indicated that you do not want me to spread around the list
(which I obviously will not do).

Therefore how can I let anyone know that I actually contacted
anyone without everyone else knowing who I contacted?

 >As usual, enjoyed conversing with you, Dave. ;>

Funnily enough enjoyed conversing with you too. ;)

Dave.
