Taylor's rank hero worship of any debunker that comes along has
poisoned Project 47, something that could easily happen on this
list. His outright claims of who is and isn't worthy and what
and who we should be reading is tiring. He simpers at the feet
of those who seek only to raise barriers and do little to
actually investigate this phenomenon.

Taylor claims this is a MUST read as if he has any business
telling the serious community of investigators what is a MUST
read. He hasn't got the shoes for it.

Roswell notwithstanding as to its veracity; the fact is that
Printy spent a couple pages on Mogul when Mogul has been proven
not to have been launched or in the vicinity that day. Despite
what the witnesses claimed of the wreckage Printy and those
before him still claim that a collection of weather balloons,
tinfoil and Sitka Spruce confounded base personnel at Roswell.

But the myth is worth fostering if only to advance the likes of
Printy and Taylor.

Taylor's last paragraph is typical of his approach. He pretends
to be  a serious researcher when in fact he does little himself
and is angered when others do not do his work for him. He
prefers to hang on the coattails of the likes of Printy.

Printy, BTW, must only have a half dozen supporters out there
who could readily be named but he puts out his e-mag upon which
he does a great deal of work. It has to be a labour of love for
him and his admission to a clique that has some agenda that is
unclear. It certainly is not a publication that will convince
those who have been investigating these same cases for years.

Printy always falls short on proving his suppositions except on
cases most of us could care less about. Most researchers are
more than capable of tossing out the nonsensical cases or even
the mundane cases with no detail worthy of inspection. Printy's
intention of course is to raise doubts while failing to reveal
that his point has been gone over many times before and makes it
look like his thinking is a fresh approach. Taylor on the other
hand is mired in some need to control what we should be
thinking, who we should believe and what cases should be
excluded from the record; never BTW what cases should be
retained and examined. Not once have I seen the latter position
from Taylor.
