Open letter, huh? Well, for what it's worth, Crocker's right and you're wrong. You're insufficiently skeptical and most of the "mysteries" you've been posting about are known loads of crap.

Nobody holds this against you. I believed in psychic powers only five years ago(*). On the other hand, accusing this list's most utterly rational poster of having "not read" your posts, after he took the trouble to respond to completely ignorable subjects... well, it may suggest you're flat wrong. Just thought you should know that. Toodles.
