Your original statement was:

A weird display of lights that behaves like a will o' the wisp
is, as far as I can tell, the description of something very
similar to, and something that just might be, a _will_o'_the_
_wisp_. You are the one who put those words into your own mouth.
Don't blame me for it.

The Halt memo makes it clear that from the very beginning,
someone in Penniston's group was describing something that
cannot be explained away as "some wierd display of blue and red
lights that behaved in an apparent will-o'-the- whisp fashion,"
to use your _exact_ words so as to avoid any future complaints
and false accusations.

That's all I've got time for. There's really no point in
debatings someone who's too fond of his own argument to concede
that rational people just might find it less than completely
convincing.
