I think this Buttermilk-zealot is referring to a harsh comment made by “Nick” on December 23. Here in the forum, why don’t we spare ourselves from postings like this by keeping the comments non-personal and constructive? A part of me is exceedingly irritated by misguided myth-makers like this, and part of me feels like this young man is a rare breed, one sandwich shy of a picnic. How long must it have taken him to make skier? And he has the nerve to call me crazy.

Well Rusty, I’ll let my readers judge for themselves who the crazy one is.

BE WARNED – Buttermilk is DANGEROUS

Deluded teenagers and fad-makers have turned the Buttermilk phenomenon into a campfire story – the steam in these screen stills from the video I’ve put up on the main site show that the rifts in the ground were caused by pressure swellings not alien creatures.

I believe that the mountain is undergoing an accelerated tectonic movement and spontaneous sinkholes such as the one that occurred here are very likely to re-occur.
I recommend that all activity on the mountain should be suspended until authorities can perform the necessary tests to guarantee everyone’s safety.

Apples and Oranges

I’ve been thinking that perhaps my expectations of people are too high. With so many problems that need addressing, its difficult for people to focus on just one. For example, people who argue with me that a thorough Buttermilk investigation would damage the environment. I’m reading this and I’m thinking – as a country we could cut our energy consumption increase in half if people switched from incandescent bulbs to fluorescent bulbs. All people have to do is buy a different bulb, there is no lifestyle change involved – and its especially relevant now as it gets dark earlier. You Environmentalists can write to me to change my mission for Buttermilk but you can’t get people change a bulb?

Are you kidding?

healthy discussion

I want to remind new readers that the Critics & Skeptics page is for structured debate about Buttermilk, and opinions which I consider to be inconsiderate or spiteful will not get
posted.

“migration”

I APOLOGIZE BUT ALL POSTS PRE-DATING THE MIGRATION ON DECEMBER 1 WILL NOT BE IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE.

Any members in need of a particular post with the date should email me directly – I have a printout archive of all posting since the forum’s inception and would be happy to track it down for you.
