Hi Greg, Like Joanne has stated, it's anything but 'flack'. It's the puerile and, in certain cases, sickening abuse and hypocrisy that runs riot on Ma'at that I can't stand. No doubt there are many contributors who do enjoy meaningful debate but there are a couple of frequent posters who consistently turn to abuse if they don't (won't ?) agree with you. Shame. And quite pathetic.

Hi Avry, Uncanny. I've not posted here nor on Ma'at for a number of months now. I was basically hounded away from Ma'at by Wall, Tonkin & Brass for suggesting that Spence rejected the 'other' two stars mentioned in her paper because she knew the answer she wanted beforehand and for claiming that a 25 second sighting window was 'impossible' in a practical sense. It's strange, but in a rounda

Hi Kees, Since your post dated 21- May- 02 22:10 requesting that this thread be made private, I haven't responded on this board as per your wishes. Not sure why Kat feels that a reply prior to your request was 'the last straw'... Cheers Andy

I'm not going to get into this again but, once again Ari, you are wrong. My reply had nothing to do with the topic that was 'banned' by Katherine Reece. It was a reply to the abuse/taunts made by certain Ma'at posters. I was told that if I posted this reply, it would be deleted. I asked for the abuse/taunts to be deleted and I received no reply. Strange how you've never posted under the name 'Ar

Hi Ananda, Points taken and understood. I've decided not to post on Ma'at again for a number of reasons so, with a bit of luck, this sort of unsavoury episode will not be repeated. Cheers and thanks for your considered response, Andy

Which Spence-endorsing, RB obsessive, Cremo bashing 'scholar' once posted this astronomical calamity - "The meridian, as explained in any first year astronomy class/textbook and in Bauval's books or any scholarly archaeoastronomy book, is the mid-point of the sky. At the equator it is directly above you. At Giza it is about 30 degrees to the south." & these snippets of wisdom -

Funny you should mention Ma'at. I was told that if I replied to what I believed to be abusive, misrepresentative and/or deliberately provocative posts directed at me, my reply would be immediately deleted. How's that for 'weighing the evidence' ?

Waterstones is in a virtually pedestrian-only zone so no vans out front. Lots of chairs inside (I went early to buy a book on Visual Basic and left home without my credit card - it really has been one of those days!) I should've hidden behind one of the bookshelves...

I really am having one of those days. I've just got back from GH's lecture at Waterstones in Birmingham. Well, I say I've just got back from the lecture - it was sold out and there was no admission on the door. So I returned home lecture-less. And it was cold. :-(

Quick question - Imagine that in 2,500BC the decision was made to build three pyramids to resemble Orion's belt as it was c.10,500BC. Now, I think that calculating the precessional cycle was within the capabilities of the AE (72 X 360) but how did the architect(s) know that Orion's 'personal' nadir was 8,000 years previous? Avry's already forwarded a method to me (Thanks Avry :-)) but I wondere

Hi Dave, I, too, have been to Chichen Itza. What a wonderfully, enthralling and atmospheric place. When my wife and I visited, the Chac-Mool atop the Temple of the Warriors was also 'out of bounds' but we did get to climb Kukulcan's in a thunderstorm! What an incredible view from the summit - dense vegetation stretching out for miles in all directions. Due to the rain, there were very few peopl
