>Unfortunately. the "affected listers" includes everyone who
produces original research, and as such it is vital to ufology
as a whole. How would you feel, Don, if having spent two years
of research someone came along and claimed that you had nothing
to do with the results?

>The consequence of this, as I have pointed out, is a reluctance
to share early research results. This in turn means less
collaboration, and less progress. If we sit idly by and let
disputed claims go unchallenged in the open, ufology will become
even more retarded that it already is.

Where confusion applied to specific cases from the documents I
could understand the need for accuracy, but the legitimacy of
the documents from TNA would not be in question, regardless of
who got them in the first place.

But don't you think that Roberts or Clarke can argue this in
their own stead rather than you and Martin with Nick Pope. They
are the ones affected.

As for collaboration, I think it will be a frosty day in hell
before you and Nick line up on the same side.

Re retarded, are you referring to us as being mentally
challenged or retarded as in the sense of being held back?

My last on this. It's Errol's call.


Don
