Hi Nick,

I recommend Web of Hate, Warren Kinsella's excellent study about
the far right in Canada, and how it worms itself into all areas
of society, often without people even realizing it.


It's not just anti-Semitism, of course, although that seems to
be the virus that most often permeates the conspiracist
subculture, which is linked - like it or not - with the UFO

Anyway, my original point was simply to observe that there are
far more odious things that undermine "serious ufology" than
someone making a few quid by lending their name to commercial
advertisements and marketing campaigns.
