Dear Mr. Keske,
As fascinating as your continual postings are, I do not feel that they are
appropriately in the spirit of what this group should be used for. While I
respect your right to offer your opinions and air your views, I really
feel that you would have a more receptive and friendly audience
elsewhere. I am sure AOL or one of the other bulletin-board services will
have an urban myth/conspiracy theory, anti-science, or other "X-File" type
area where you will be appreciated for your deep thoughts. Don't stop
writing, just do it elsewhere. Thanks,
K.J. Roberts, Ph.D.
