Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

You tried to make a posting earlier, prefacing it with:

'Jon, I hope you will allow this post to be put through because I feel that I have a valid point to make.'

Is this your way of acknowledging that all your other posts have been malicious and hurtful, and without a `valid point to make`?

No Matter.

For months you have been intermittently orchestrating a smear campaign against us on various forums purely because you believe that the CFZ is a threat to your own pathetic little organisation. I don't care what point you are trying to make. I don't even care if you are writing positive reviews of all my books and sending Richard a little present. You are banned, permanently, both under the name `Highland Tiger` and the other pseudonyms behind which you hide. This ban will never be lifted. And I shall do my best to have you banned from any other forum in which you spout your vile drivel. If cryptozoology and allied disciplines are to progress then there is no place in it for vicious schoolyard bullying of the type in which you deal.

I googled Highland tiger, and I found a conservation group that is preserving Scottish wildcats.

I hope that's not the same person, because Scottish wildcats (and all European wildcats) are awesome and need protection.
