I don't know what subjects - plural - you are referring to. We
are talking about the subject of crop circles. I did for some
time familiarize myself with the formations of these crop
circles but became disenchanted when it was discovered that
there was obvious hoaxing in their formation in more than a few
cases. At that point I began to tune out. You yourself admitted
to John Rimmer that you thought most were hoaxed.

I don't need lessons to have an opinion about something I've
looked into previously that to me has a high probability of
being laid to rest as a man made phenomenon. I disregard all of
the new video and digital camera evidence as hoaxed for the same
reason, because it is now relatively easy to fake UFO photos.

You seem to be selective with whom you get testy with. Rimmer is
saying the same things I am but with him you show patience. I'll
guarentee you he's less informed about the subject than I am.
maybe you recognize that and that's the reason.

The only reason I even bothered with this thread was because
there was/is an attempt on your part to link trace cases to crop
circles as some way to legitimize it and give it a birth right
by somehow making this some smooth progression from small
circles to the larger when in fact the early crop circle hoaxers
used just this link to play upon amplifying it into something
other than how the original depressions and swales were formed;
by the hull of some anomalous craft.

When I see a sophisticated 200 foot "crop" circle branded into a
large stand of 45 foot spruce trees-without evidence of chain
saw use-then you will have me convinced.
