This will be my last response to you, and I will pass over any other post or thread created by you. You actually need not respond to this post, since I really don't care what your answer is.
I did understand Wil was the parrotopia parent, so to speak.
MY father taught me to respect everyone until they prove they do not deserve my respect. I give more than one chance. But, once they lose it, they usually do not get it back.
Does your belief on the subject of respect (everyone has to earn it) mean you DISRESPECT absolutely everyone until they win you over? If yes, you do not respect a single person here, including Graham Hancock!
I want to point out that I (as well as most people) wouldn't give a hoot if someone wanted me to win them over, because if they did, I would let them go bye-bye real quick. There are an awful lot of people out there to make friends with, or just talk to. What do you think makes you so special that anyone would WANT to win your respect? Why would a stranger CARE what you think of them? No one here (that I know of) knows who you are. Do you expect them to disrespect you in return?
Further, I think you might have some self-esteem issues. The reason? Why are you posting in a public forum, where you will have to communicate (or try to) with people you do not like and have no respect for (and parroting, so to speak, their feelings to your own, they do not like or respect you in return)?
That kind of attitude is hard for most people to deal with, Jim. If I were in Mr. Hoagland's shoes, I wouldn't bother to even fully read your post, nevermind take PRECIOUS TIME to answer it. He is an acclaimed author and very public science figure. Who do you think you are?
