<In a message dated 10/31/98 10:31:26 AM Pacific Standard Time,
Here is why I believe it is so.>
< 1. Chip Hates Paul Shurch>
If you mean Paul Shuch the answer is I don't hate anybody; certainly not Paul.
< 2. Chip Hates Amateur SETI (he believes it is a total waste of time)>
I state as a fact that that amateur SETi with small apertures is
< 3. Chip lurks on the SETI public list and frequently starts arguments to
I disagree on matters of fact. Why not? Is this a cult or something?
< 4. Chip insures everyone that he was the first to discredit the recent
activity as a HOAX and says he pronounced it as so within five minutes
after looking at it.>
Look at the posts of 10-26. You will see I was first. It took Bob Hohlfeld 4
minutes yesterday when he saw the seti contact web page. He was faster!
< 5. Chip accuses Paul of being responsible for an ETI hoax on AOL a few
years ago, on this date>
I do indeed. Perhaps you will fill the folks in on the AOL hoax from 1995
(94?). It listed Paul Shuch as the contact. I believe it was 'detection of
intelligent life on Europa' or some such drivel.
< QUESTION? Would it not be paybacks to create one now? >
Payback for...what? I in no way feel put out.
< By doing so, and
creating a fuss, as did happen, on the SETI public list he would sway
the media to have a less respect for the SETI League and its leader
while elevating himself.>
Where, pray, have I done this? Please post for all to see. I in no way
vilified the SETI LEAGUE to the press. I will continue to be scientifically
critical of ARgus and other bad ideas.
< I'm not sure exactly what your trip is, but your unprofessionalism and
irresponsible personal attacks are not welcomed by me and quite a few
others who have voiced their opinions to me about your total lack of any
tact on this public list, via personal mail.
I truly believe you a an intelligent person, and have a great deal of
knowledge from which, we would all learn greatly. But as a hot-head,
you destroy your own creditability. I personally would love to learn
from your vast experience. But frankly, I think you're a complete Jerk,
and I wouldn't want to be around you >
Why would this be an option? I have a rather full life as it is....
< I have tolerated you and your outbursts because I personally felt you
had something to share with us all, but quite frankly, I have determined
that you are not willing to give anything to this group but grief.
I send this anonymously just as you did yours on Oct 23 Zulu, to show
everyone just how easily it is to do.>
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING????????!!!!!!!!!--after Scott Adams.
Regards Chip. Live long and prosperů
This takes nonsense into a higher level. I want to make something very clear:
this is slander. This is wrong. It is lies. It is rapidly becoming a legal
