Setizens and Others (including Hoax Promoters, etal):
This whole episode has been somewhat illuminating re: how we in SETI react,
but on the balance a mostly a tiresome diversion from real science! I have
resisted making comment, for the most part, so far. Not having experience
using FFTDSP or SETIFOX, I differed to the experts in that regard. Not
having an operating RT, no contribution in the verification process.
Regarding Paul Dore, if he is real, and if he had no participation in the
hoax, then he has a whopping legal case that can brought to bear on the
instigators. So too, does Paul's employer, the SETI-League, the German
Radio Observatory, etc., etc. I think it is time for the hoaxters (and all
their co-conspirator/facilatators) to leave (run) and hide. Because when
the lawyers and courts are thru with them......!!!
End of comment. period.
