It may be that _some_ of the more legitimately skeptical are
necessary so you and I don't start huffing pixie-dust <LOL>,
but I have been thinking in a similar vein for a few days now.
I'm tired, too, of persons (like that lovely Mr. Scherk fellow
who Dave Furlotte soundly drop-kicked on SDI last Saturday
night) sailing in to spew tired debunkerisms (already soundly
discredited many times over) like it's the first time they've
ever been raised... It's like a game of "Whack-A-Mole" at the
carnival... the faster you whack them the quicker they stick
their little heads up through the hole. After a while, the arm
gets tired.

UpDates is the undisputed Cadillac of Ufological Lists. I can
see where the draw would be irresistible. If they can "make it"
there, they can make it, anywhere?

I guess it comes with the territory?

Yeah! Then we could have more time to savage one another! <g>
Seriously though, perhaps that's a measure of verity for
UpDates. The CSICOPians are the type that would use the openness
of democracy to destroy same. Errol's operation is more
collegiate and open-bordered than that?

Be that as it may - "Whack-a-mole"! <LOL>
