Back in 1998, Jim Oberg had some uncomplementary
things to say about my "unauthorized" website.

Considering the low level of the pitiable "rebuttal" to my circa
1983 study of why Cooper's UFO stories (and stories _about_
Cooper and UFOs which do not originate from him) are not reliable
evidence for "true UFOs", any change is likely to be an
improvement.

Maybe I should feel 'honored' to have my name used for a
"Website" but it certainly is now without any permission or
agreement of mine.

However, it does make a good point: serious UFO 'debunking'
studies aren't answered or refuted, only danced around and made
half-witted fun of. That's something I won't argue with!   ;-)

Before I could respond,
Bruce Maccabee had something to say.

What's this? Someone named a web site after you, Jim, without
your permission?

Errol, I was away on vacation. What do you know.... he acknowledged my
site's existence. The following is for distribution. Thanks, J.C.

JC:   Mr. Oberg, thanks for your acknowledgement.  There are those who
would say the rebuttal not as "pitiable" as you seem to think. Is there
something specific in the essays you wish to comment upon?  :-)

Unfortunately, Mr. Oberg refused to discuss it.

Re: Mr. Oberg's comments regarding my website

....snip...

Is it my imagination or did it get quiet out there? With all the
writing I did in the rebuttals, it certainly is not impossible I might
have made some mistakes in my thinking or data somewhere. Perhaps Mr.
Oberg could cordially help me correct anything he finds? I'd be happy
to make any necessary changes if:

1) he would point them out to me
2) we discuss them and
3) the majority of readers agree with his assessment.

BTW:  It is the same "general innuendo, with minimal or no support"
exhibited in Mr. Oberg's post to me, which I find great fault with in
his "circa 1983" essay.


Respectfully,
Jerry Cohen
