I have just had a long conversation with Adam Davies. There is absolutely no bad blood between us, or between him and the CFZ or any other permutation (not that I ever thought that there was). Indeed, the forthcoming CFZ Yearbook includes a major article about his search for the yeti. "I wouldn't have spent two days writing it if you and I weren't good" he laughed.
Earlier this week Loren wrote:
"Happy New Year, and may 2010 be full of great surprises for all of us interested in this field! I look forward to co-operative efforts between the International Cryptozoology Museum, the Centre for Fortean Zoology and other worldwide cryptozoological organisations. "
He would not have written that if there was any bad blood between us.
If you are who I think you are, you are one of the leaders of a numerically small group of researchers who have in the last year taken umbrage with the CFZ and me in particular, and have taken every opportunity to belittle us. If I am wrong then you are just a small-minded idiot with too much time on your hands.
Whichever is true, it is obvious that there is no point in me trying to debate with you in a civilised manner. I do not like having to do this, but you leave me no option. You are banned from commenting on any CFZtv posting, and should you reappear under another pseudonym I will do the same. No doubt you will go to some other Internet medium and complain about how Jon Downes 'censors' his video comments.
Sadly, because of you, yes he does.
