I commend you for your restraint.

I put my initial thoughts about Seth's article on my web site in
the form of an opinion piece but subsequent to that and having
thought about it a bit more, while not changing the main tennet
of my comments, I thank a more critical tone is appropriate.

I would describe this as a dishonest effort from Seth. He's
waving a flag at us and shouting "Come and get me" and I can
only presume he hasn't had a cuddle from anything warm and
breathing for a while.

But I said I wouldn't fiddle with my tennets, for they are
these; this latest non-event is like a gnats bite on Shrek's
posterior. It is nothing but a very minor irritation.

We should not lose sight of the fact that fundamentally we are
in the same bed as Seth and what we should really be doing is
snuggling up closer to him and his cohorts. No spooning mind, we
should lie back to back, fighting off the CSICOP-ians and the
head-in-the-sand brigade who feel all efforts and energies
should be directed Earth bound. The Navel Gazers and The Smug
are the real foes.

Seth, I embrace thee as a wandering brother lost in the desert
of ignorance. Cease this nonsense and whisper in my ear once
again those sweet words about how you think we're going to make
contact in the next 20 years. You smooth-talker, you.
