I guess years of feeling like being hung out to dry and not
taken seriously has left a big shoe print on our collective

Us, poor like old independent - serious researchers - afraid to
challenge the crap that is sometimes handed out. Why don't we
take ourselves seriously. No, no, not in the usual whining way
but as an insult to the data we are presenting. The stuff
backed up with documentation.

The recent John Fox 'documentary' was an insult to Hastings. Fox
took recorded testimony, backed by documentation and basically
ignored it. Why didn't someone call Fox out on his ability to
read and understand English? Here again, who the hell in the UFO
community keeps allowing people like this to get away with
murder - murder of the information.

People, don't get this desperate.
