I was merely pointing out that the attempt was being made to paint me as a clown. As to it being a fairly high level discussion, well, I think it has more of the element of a bruhaha than anything else, as ninety percent of the content was argument against arguments that weren't even being made. But I thank you for your kind remarks and support. What should have gotten discussed is the need for calibration of the human witness in ufo and anomalous events, but, as I said, this got pre-empted. This pre-emptionis still happening, as is the sophism (whether it be intentional or not). Listen to 'Strange Days...
