I didn't think I was addressing you, Sir. But if you want to it's
your right in a free society to offer an opinion.

I thought you were just going to let me twist in the wind, Sir
John. Please just ignore me and maybe I will just give up and
go away.

Sorry, this does not translate well.

>Funny how you're the one who keeps using terms
>such as 'biased" and 'need for attention.'

Basically, its just logic I am using and a dictionary. If UFO
research is to be respectable (yes, that is a dream isn't it?),
lets not used biased terms.

If one does analysis to back up ones conclusion then that is not
biased. Also, I did not receive _any_ detailed refutation of the
copious data I provided to reach my conclusions from _you_, Mr.
Velez. Believe me, I am open to the possibility of error in so
complex an analysis. But you offered only insults and arm
wavings. In fact, anyone who sent me comments on the Campeche
analysis were taken seriously by me to try to resolve and
improve my work. Really, I can understand why you did not bother
with a detailed refutation of my analysis, because it _is_ very
mathematical, complex. But I provide formula, derivations, data
sources, etc.

Uh, what? I am asking a simple question. Perhaps, in Spanish
there is another meaning of the word "Fleet" that does not
translate to English. Seriously, is this the case? It is hard to
deny logically that "fleet" is a leading term that guides the
public to think these are vehicles under intelligent control as
opposed to a more open minded approach, since you have not
identified them (you call them UFOs), they could be NON-vehicles
under _non_-intelligent _non_- control. We don't know.

Humm, debunker? That seems like you are trying to insult me.
Anyway, its just words. Anyway, by giving it a rest, you mean,
leave you alone? I wasn't addressing this new thread to you or
against you or your friends, but to the general List audience
because it would be interesting to see how they perceive this
terminology question. And it seems a fair question for true UFO
researchers.
