This is my very first post and I pray that I do not make too much of a hack of it. And I readily admit that, at 33 pages, I, at best, scanned over the
material in this thread (At least the last fifteen or so pages).
But my ideas on the original subject of this Thread seem to differ from what I have seen so far. I have witnessed absolutes. Polarized opinions.
Paraphrasing it seems to fall into two camps, John Lear is Legitimate? Or is John Lear involved in disinformation.
My idea is, maybe it is a bit of both?
Imagine an episode of CSI, where we are informed that a single hair, left at a crime scene, can be enough evidence to prosecute us. The average person
would try to clean a crime scene spotless. This is a vain tactic. The human eye misses so much. But, imagine if a criminal were to rob the dumpster of
a local, high volume, hair cuttery, taking bags of hair away... What if this criminal then dumped all that hair INTO the crime scene.
Suddenly a matching hair, from the criminal is no longer a cut and dry case. It is ONE hair out of dozens, or hundreds of different hair samples. The
criminal has, effectively, glutted the evidence chain and created reasonable doubt.
I personally think, from what I have read (And, yes, i do realize that my join date is very recent. But I have lurked on this sight, of and on, for
years. Never as much as the last month of so. But it is not unfamiliar to me), that JohnLear seems to work in a manner not unlike the above mentioned
John Lears' personal history is replete with examples that he tends to buck the system and do things on his own terms. What more exciting thing could
there be, for such a man, than to be told that he can release extremely cutting edge facts, just as long as he buries them in with tons of false
information as well.
Diamonds in the rough. One fact sandwiched between ten misdirections? Twenty?
What a wonderful feeling it would be to know that you'd be allowed to tell your own story, no matter how outrageous or secret, just as long as you
couched that secret in with enough packaging (sic disinformation) as to make the revelation seem harmless and suspect.
I offer this as food for thought only. And I offer it because the idea came to me, very quickly, as I read Mr. Lears' posts.
My opinion is that Mr. Lear is a very intelligent man. His storied, if not slightly mysterious past, seems to have impressed the moderators (Who check
credentials if I am not mistaken, but who are not obligated to share the results of such checks with the general population here) to such a degree
that they support him openly. Mr Lear presents himself as jovial, sage, and wise. He deals with negative posts, and their posters, with a skill that
proves a mastery of diplomacy and tact.
A man this well rounded, in my estimation, would not be prone to exotic flights of fancy unless there was reason. And, despite what I have read
earlier in this thread, he seems to show no signs of senile dementia that I can observe.
Kudos to Mr Lear. If nothing else, he provides this community with much to ponder and he proves to be a wellspring of class.
Regardless of beliefs, or position, Mr Lear has most certainly won my respect as a human being.
