Hi Kevin, hi All,

Kevin opines:

"Pulling from their experiencers what they want to see" has to
do with "leading" or "suggestion" Kevin. The "Docca" claims that
the experiencers themselves all share the same "take" (point of
view) as the researchers in question. Two different subjects.
You are talking about a "before" situation (where someone is
lead in some way) and the "Docca" is talking about an "after"
effect (people who have adopted or share the same point of
view/take) on the phenom as the researchers they consulted.


...are we discussing Hopkins', Jacobs', and Mack's alleged
'leading' of their clients, or are we discussing Mortellaro's
unfounded claim that they are _all_ de facto in agreement with
the researchers in question "points of view?"

If anyone is introducing "red Herrings" it is the Randle Fish
Market! The Docca and myself are debating one thing, and _you_
are introducing another. Fish anyone?   ;)

I don't have any 'argument' with them. It is Mortellaro who is
making unfounded claims and insulting a large group of really
nice, bright, individuals with his insinuations. Now you chime
in with "they lead their clients." Yet neither one of you has
answered my simple and very straightforward question:

Show me the poll or study that shows that the clients of
Hopkins, Jacobs and Mack all share the same point of view as the
researchers in question.

Simple question. But try getting a straight answer around here!
You guys picked a bad time to mess with me. I'm in between web
jobs and I have a little _time_ for the List. Bring it on!
<screeching maniacal laughter>

Until I get a relevant response from _either_ of you on the
question at hand,
