Hello Roger, Robert and List,

We already have a List that casts a critical eye on UFO claims.

This one.

Thanks to EBK, it is open to all and displays the whole spectrum
of opinions that _seldom go unchallenged_.

Now, if somebody wants a List where he can go away with
poppycock claims such as skeptics are used to, fine. Be my
guest. I don't think this will drive anybody towards Debunkers
Anonymous.

As for Robert's mind reading, I rather see it as wits acquired
from experience. The skeptics own the crystal ball shop.

Regards,

Serge Salvaille
