Re: [RobertMBlevins] Marla And Her Tale [In reply to] Can't Post

In reply to:
Quote:
'In the interest of discussing ‘other suspects’, I want to check out Marla, then review her tale. The fact that her family won’t back up her story is a non-sequitur. RobertMBlevins knows this truly doesn’t matter in the least...'

Actually...it matters quite a lot. Marla has claimed that LD and his brother returned to the house on Thanksgiving morning and that LD was injured in an accident. Yet no one else at the house will verify this story, or the comics, not even her mother, and LD was temporarily living at mother's house. Had his own bedroom. One of the things I said about this supposed accident, and the fact that no one who was at that dinner table that night...don't you think someone would have noticed that LD was bleeding all over his turkey dressing? Sister, mother, brother, all were there. None can confirm any of this happened.

Quote:
'Her story is much more appealing with its supple, pouting appearance complete with a British sports car instead of some station wagon pulling an Airstream, because station wagons pulling Airstreams do much better on snow covered mountain roads...'

Never said that IF the trailer and wagon were used, and IF KC was the guy...that he was picked up in the woods. I suggested that he probably walked out to either the main highway, or the nearest telephone. It is only Marla who claims LD was found by his brother in the woods. Using an MG sportscar, no less, without GPS, in wintertime.

Quote:
'Plus she said her uncle lost the money, and helllllooooooo….. no one knows where the money is. Much more believable than the other poorly crafted bits of fiction found on this thread...'

In the first version of her story, Marla said LD landed near Sisters, OR. When it was pointed out to her that the money on Tena Bar could be a problem for that story, she changed the DZ to Washington state...and near the Tena Bar money.

Quote:
'Did anyone take note that she is the ONLY person to have seen the Dan Cooper comic during a plausible time frame? Another example of how much truer her story is than the ‘others’ which have Big Orange Heads...'

Who says he had the comics and that she saw them? Nobody at the house says so except Marla. And where exactly did he obtain these French-language comics? They were mostly distributed in Europe and in parts of French-speaking Canada. It's also very convenient that Marla came forward not a whole long time after the existence of the comic was made public in 2008 by the FBI. When I asked Marla how he may have gotten them, her reply was that 'LD had a car' and probably drove to Canada to get them. LOL.

Wake up, Farf. You've seen her Facebook postings, her gloats about the media and 'capitalizing'. She also claims to take meds for AAD in one of those posts. Her brother, who was there, won't go near her story. Figure it out. I'm sure she's a nice lady in person, and yes, I will agree it took some guts for her to appear at the Symposium. But the FBI found her story without merit, and her publisher figured out the same thing.

WE HAVE A BRAIN TOO! -

LET US HAVE AN OPINION ?

LEAVE IT TO THE PROFESSIONALS!

NO MORE MUD-HUT PHOTOS FROM THE WRONG PLACE ON THE PLANET - PLEEEEEEEEEAZ. MadLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaugh

Farf - I hope you have to CRAP in a thicket of Poison Ivy and Blackberry thorns and a bed of FIRE ants! Then on that evening have to appear at your own Wedding without A/C and be dressed in a Tuxedo.

Jo, Is the above part of your Kentucky charm? I'll bet Duane loved you for your genteel qualities.

Robert99

Genteel - definitely NOT!
Crude - only because circumstances and time are NOT on my side.

I grew up a lady and remained a lady until I had to deal with the FBI. In the beginning when I first contacted them in 1996 I just offered up what I had to help, but the letter of 1998 - showed they had done NOTHING.

Then by 2000 with the help of the media and some good friends - I had enough to confront the FBI, but again they used lies to cover lies. Then I had NO choice but to go public.

Between the computer and age and this thread - yea, I've had to put on the "charm" (translated to get down and get dirty without using a lot of nasty words) to make my point. If nothing else works and I feel bad - play the sympathy card to get some help.

I have thought more "bad" words and written more "bad"words in this thread than I ever thought possible for me. If someone in the past used certain words I turned and walked away - not anymore . I do sometime try to say what I am thinking in a sarcastice way, but never quiet got the hang of it.

If some of the things I say make me sound mean - then so be it. I learned sitting still and being polite was NOT getting me anywhere with the Cooper thing. I have never been one to pull things together and able to present them in an organized way - I needed help. Because of the yrs involved and my age - even my files are scrambled.

I feel I have failed and that makes me feel hopeless. So excuse me if I do NOT beat around the bush gently when there is something I need to say.

Lovelock Up [In reply to] Can't Post

I spent some time in a tiny town in northern Nevada named Lovelock. This was a memorable destination for several reasons, which were unrelated, sort of.

I try and stay at mom and pop motels when I travel and found such an enterprise on the west side of town. It was a sprawling, single story motel named the Lovelock Inn and was built by Errett L. Cord. I had no idea that he was associated with this establishment which he built as a logical stop over, for people traveling Route 40. He was known to me for building one of the most beautiful automobiles in the form of the self named- Cord 810. Understated elegance which perfectly reflected the art-deco styling of the late 30’s, powered by a Lycoming engine, which would go on to be one of the most reliable, light aircraft, engines still produced today. I was astonished at the connection between that motel, my favorite car and an aircraft engine in the remote high desert. What more would Lovelock have to offer?

In town, I found a place to eat which had two women engaged in a shouting match, in the parking lot. They both had raspy voices which carried their limited vocabulary a great distance so everyone could appreciate what a ‘dumb ass bitch’ someone was being. Oh well. At least the lunch was a superb value with service that was second to none.

Next stop placed me in the casino where I would build a fortune like Cord’s, using nothing more than moxie and my brilliant ability to beat and humiliate, a blackjack dealer. The dealer asked how long I would be visiting since he had never seen me before. I told him about my interest in history and how I was staying at Cord’s motel, with a pedantic lilt. So you’re staying at the Lovelock Inn, he said without hesitation. He went on to suggest several historical places of interest while simultaneously draining my gambling budget. Then some rough hewn, chain smoker, ran into the table and coarsely planted herself in a chair. The dealer informed her that it was a two dollar minimum as she fingered through some change while a cigarette dangled from her mouth, dropping ashes down the front of her shirt. She kept counting and dithering with her cash for an inordinate amount of time while oblivious to the surroundings. After realizing she didn’t have enough, she asked me for a ‘loan’ and I awarded her with a dollar slug. This was both a way to appease this woman and served as a sort of admission price for watching an ad hoc, freak show. I was not disappointed as she began to cough and hack, while elbowing me and saying ‘look at that’, displaying her hand of cards. “Give me a little one” she shouted with the same raspy voice the women in the parking lot possessed, and made me wonder if there is some sort of contagion drifting through Lovelock. “Yeah!” she shouted as the dealer threw down a card that brought her total to 25. “You busted” the dealer flatly responded as she bent down for a closer look at the cards before exiting the table, then hissing something about “other pucker”, or some quote from Voltaire, I’m not quite sure. Mattered not, as I was off to sight see and try to get less stupid.

After failing at getting less stupid, I figured a little bottle of Jim Beam may serve as a sort of liquid library. I found a convenience store and stood in line behind several more of these Lovelock lovelies, with tattered T-shirts, tattoos and utterly no peripheral vision as they groped and grabbed at bags of chips and candy bars with the same detached air of being oblivious to their surroundings. They too were women in the most minimal of inclusion. Coarse, demanding, repugnant and void of anything approaching feminine traits, why did this tiny town have such a schizophrenic populous? It was like the entire village was acting out some sort of ‘Twin Peaks’ existence, with oddly normal and pleasant people mixed with abject troglodytes. I needed a drink.

So I’m sitting outside the Lovelock Inn and sampling some ‘Tung Oil’ when an employee comes out and asks how I’m enjoying my vacation. I told him the good things and then smoothly brought up my observations about the ‘women’ of the city and what an odd dichotomy it represented. He nodded and said my viewpoint was on target regarding the women folk. Thinking that it was the product of nuclear testing or some ground water contamination, I asked “What happened?”

He said that a new prison was built outside town and they were all looking forward to the much needed income and jobs which the institution would deliver to tiny Lovelock. But it turned out to be more of a Faustian deal than anyone could have anticipated. For not only do prisons bring the most contemptible, loathsome, bottom feeding and repulsive animals to live in a human zoo, they also bring their ‘families’. I was stunned since employment would prove problematic for these people. He went on to tell me that most of them are scamming Welfare or Social Security along with any housing vouchers they can obtain. They move into already distressed properties, since descent people don’t want to be near them, and proceed to “push the walls over”. Could this be? I had never even considered the possibility of prison groupies and the economic disease they would unleash on such a location. Stunning, simply stunning.

So there I sat, in the umbra of a Spanish tiled roof, which was financed by an automobile mogul who created beauty with his designs, while experiencing the retrograde arc of total ugliness, resulting from the arrival of a prison, and the associated ‘wives’ of these vermin. For these ‘women’ built an invisible prison for all the normal citizens of Lovelock to serve a never ending term, with crass and coarse individuals who possess a detached sense of entitlement, as uninvited and unwelcomed residents. Weird, I wonder what made me think of this. Oh well.

I found nothing Hypnotizing about Marla other than on a MILF scale of 1-10 she would be about a 6!

Care to explain the MILF acronym? I am far from being PC but don't you think publicly rating Marla's desirability as someone you'd like to fk is a bit disrespectful to her? She was pretty brave to present at the symposium, kinda like walking into the lions den. She didn't have handlers and didn't dodge questions. Maybe she has misinterpreted childhood memories and maybe she sought media attention, but I thought she handled herself pretty well. Sure she was attractive but she wasn't using sex to sell her story. Do I think LD was DBC? Nope.
Do I think Marla was a cynical liar seeking to profit from a fake story? Nope.

Flame away. I have a Nomex jumpsuit.

377

perhaps it was a bit harsh to some, I don't like to call people liars, but, her story does not fit once you go through it, the magazine, well the best thing to do IMO would be to gather all the facts of the case find the weak ones and run with it. she seems to know a awful lot about the case ( no crime there) but found it strange that McCoy landed 5 miles from his house and according to Marla LD landed 6!

getting back to the magazines, this also grew from one to several, I just can't buy into an 8 year old girl remembering all of this in detail! she was never "hypnotized" from what I heard on a interview was her stating she was told to go in a cool dark place and think, something to that effect. for someone who claims to have the answer to the worlds only unsolved hijacking, she sure as melted into the background! personally I would be hard at work preparing everything I have found out about a Family member involved in something like this!

the house that was in Sisters is way to small as to what Marla was describing by stating LD and Dewey had rooms there, no other records were found about property owned there. old timers recall the house I showed as well as to where they lived.

If Marla is not being truthful about her story, well this would also be a kick in the face to millions of people who believed her story!

the last place LD was before he died was owned by Dale Miller who stated LD's wife had taken everything he owned which I found not to be true either, she took his name off the deed to the house several years after he died, the fact of her alone not talking also brings red flags into play!

Now for his Birth, once again we do not see Marla coming forward explaining why his headstone reads 9/17/1931 when his school & Military records show a different story?
The Family tree also shows this! the cemetery also claims to have two different dates?

these are just some of the questions that need answers, so as you say yourself, where is Marla? the comment was directed as a joke but I can see where it might be disrespectful but reflecting a moment, where has Marla been respectful to many in this field, I understand people think she was ran off, but, if she is being honest about her story she shouldn't let people's remarks about her story get in her way!

If you had the key to the worlds only unsolved hijacking, would you sit on it after a wild Public free for all?

IMHO I think Marla scrambled towards the end because of the book and started adding things to her story in order to keep the fire lit hoping it would pay off, If I'm wrong then so be it, If I offended you by the statement I apologize to you or anyone on here!

as for Marla's personality, I'm not sure if she would find it disrespectful, but I could be wrong. again it was just a joke that seems to have been taken wrong.

Re: [Farflung] Marla And Her Tale [In reply to] Can't Post

In reply to:
RobertMBlevins responds without a hint of downstream consideration with:

Yet no one else at the house will verify this story, or the comics, not even her mother…”

Soooo…… ummm…… yeah…… gosh (ugh)….. If that’s so important regarding Marla’s story and used to impeach what she said, then I guess I’ve got to get on board and violently agree since I’m a man, and a man who does what he says, because I’ve got a pair. That being said…….

Since Lyle, a brother of a suspect, won’t back up the story, as he said during an interview on 920 AM, then that makes for the immediate and total elimination of Kenny from the suspect pool for the exact same reason.

What say you RobertMBlevins?

I say that Lyle had not a clue whether or not his brother was the hijacker. You ignore the obvious. This alleged radio interview happened BEFORE AB of Seattle began investigating Christiansen, and before Porteous started checking out different people on my request. Since Lyle didn't live in Washington state, and the only time he visited his brother was while his brother was dying, and since KC never came out and TOLD his brother he was the hijacker....then how would Lyle KNOW one way or another? Answer: He didn't, so his opinion is moot.

Trust me on this: Even if Lyle said this five years ago, you can bet he isn't saying it today, especially after I presented him with the evidence gathered from the investigation.

The comparison you use to Marla's story doesn't make sense. Marla says all of this (the hijacking and LD and his brother's involvement) happened during a major family gathering. This means ACTUAL WITNESSES. Unfortunately, not a single person who was there will verify any of her statements. And they were THERE. Sister, mother, brother. Was little Marla the only one who noticed LD and his brother came home and that LD was injured?

I'm not going any further with this one. I simply don't believe her story.

Don't be a drama queen. Doesn't suit you. If Lyle had said in a 2007 radio interview his brother WAS the hijacker, would you believe him? Would that convince you Kenny Christiansen was the hijacker? Of course not. The door swings both ways. Lyle didn't know whether or not his brother was the hijacker. So his opinion on it is worthless.

Re: [377] Peterson in Nepal [In reply to] Can't Post

  

Flame away. I have a Nomex jumpsuit.

377
Talked to two people today. One a former Peace
Corps Manager who spent time in India, Nepal, and
Tibet beginning in '63 through the 80s.. He gave me
several leads to call ..

He says there was only one main road to Pokhara
well into the 70s.. from Kathmandu, a bus traveled
that road, then only foot paths into and out of the
Annapurna area, the main foot trail connected to
Pokhara. No vehicular roads into the Annapurna area
at all. He says the socalled hospital at Pokhara
consisted of several (cold) WWII metal quonsets
so it made sense to take the bus to Kathmandu for
any major medical issues.

He says the whole period of the late sixties to mid
seventies was a busy time in this area, with lots of
tourists (including the Beatles) coming there to trek
to the Annapurna area. Thousands of tourists, he
says. He says a European or American would not
have been noticed except if one took residence and
was there a year or more.

He says there were several Peace Corps volunteers
living in the Annapurna area from about 1968-71
who might have known of Petey if he lived there.
He's going to check reunion lists to see if they can
be located..

He says not to worry too much about the term "mud
hut" because all construction in this region has stone
and earth in one form or another, as an "adobe"
form of construction. He says some people just pile
up stones and then glob wet 'earth' around the
stones, let that dry and set, and then build up
another layer with a thatch roof. Once dry they
usually white-coat everything with a kind of clay
plaster which is trowled on with a board. So maybe
those comments add further clarification.

He is going to try and contact a few people tomorrow
and get back to me - I explained to him what this is
about.

Re: [georger] Peterson in Nepal [In reply to] Can't Post

Received a reply by email from a guy who was in the Kathmandu Valley in 1970. Says mudbrick huts were occasional there, more prevelent in other areas of the country. Judging from all the pictures I've seen lately of Life in Nepal, I'd say that using natural materials to build homes was a common practice. It's a sure bet that if Sheridan was in Nepal, he wasn't staying in a single-story ranch style rambler with a double garage.

Made a little animation a while back about my Favorite Car Ever...Lil' Subie. (Turn up your speakers) She is gone now. (*hangs head*) After four months in the driveway with a snapped timing belt, she became an organ donor at the wrecking yard. Tomorrow, I'm picking up a very nice '88 Nissan hardbody truck with less than 100k original and the Z-24 motor. The Z-motor doesn't have a belt. It uses a timing chain. Smile

Re: [377] Marla [In reply to] Can't Post

We no longer have a snowmann in this forum, but there is no shortage of strawmen.

Marla only has her memories of when she is 8 years old and information her father told her. Those memories, she recalled later.

She would not know where her uncle landed -- it's likely she would not have heard that as an 8 year old and not something her father would have told her either. Anything she said was likely speculation.

The point I was trying to make was not to compare her to a Pulitzer prize winner (I think everyone except Robert Blevins got that), but like many people she knew SOMETHING, but she wasn't sure what she knew. And, what she did know wasn't conclusive by any means --but not so "out there" for the FBI to dismiss it either.

In the case of Marla's story (and this would be true of all of the other theories on here), we have no more information that would lead us to prove or disprove it than we had when it first came out.

And, 377, you're an attorney, correct? If you interviewed Sheridan as your client, he could tell you his whole story and the condition that nothing be revealed until his death and under attorney-client privilege, you could not be compelled to reveal it before then, right?

Re: [RobertMBlevins] FELIX BAUMGARTNER [In reply to] Can't Post

Blevins:

Thanks for the reference in Nepal to mud huts and pictures of some.

From Blevins:

This was taken from a review on a travel website. There are many like it, where people mention mudbrick cottages with thatched roofs, although today the majority are using more modern construction. A picture of a typical Nepali mud hut is here: http://www.travelblog.org/Photos/3200908

Now that makes Sheridan's story about mud huts believable. How about the picture of him doing a demonstration jump before the NORJACK Caper dressed in the business chute and loafers. I know I have seen the photo but does anyone know where to find it?

Sorry, I do not. But I have a better mystery for you.

How many pickups does Tom Fogerty of Creedence have on his Rickenbacker guitar while he's playing Born on the Bayou?

In reply to:
Blevins:

Thanks for the reference in Nepal to mud huts and pictures of some.

From Blevins:

This was taken from a review on a travel website. There are many like it, where people mention mudbrick cottages with thatched roofs, although today the majority are using more modern construction. A picture of a typical Nepali mud hut is here: http://www.travelblog.org/Photos/3200908

Now that makes Sheridan's story about mud huts believable. Bob Sailshaw
sailshaw@aol.com

Blevin's photo of a MUD HUT is from NORTHERN
INDIA, Sailshawl! Doesnt even apply to the Annapurna region except construction was done with
hands!

But apparently you now have all the help you need.
That's a relief and one thing less to do. Good luck
to yous.

I now doubt your whole rucking story, because its
obvious one mud hut is the same as the next one
to you! You are now Blevinated.

Dont forget your manners!

Sorry 377. Im done with this BS.

Laugh

I'm not much for that when judging people. Mostly I have to meet them first. Guess this means I still like you.

Correct.

I'd take Sheridan's case pro bono...one old jumper helping another. It's a nice fantasy but it won't happen. Sheridan thinks I am FBI/CIA which is kinda ironic. I contribute regularly to an organization that sues the FBI and CIA to stop abuses and unconstitutional actions.

Some of you think you know everything.

Lol...Oops Blevins, watch out for that petard.

Re: [MarkBennett] Marla [In reply to] Can't Post

"She would not know where her uncle landed"

I have to disagree with this statement, this is from a phone interview Marla gave.

She went on to explain that the reports of the jump had been misreported. The weather was bad on the night of November 24th but D.B. Cooper told the pilot at what speed, altitude and direction to fly. L.D. Cooper worked as a surveyor and knew this area very well. It has been reported that D.B. Cooper jumped over a very heavily wooded area when, in all actuality, he jumped over farmland and had planned his jump to put himself inside of a six mile area which was only seven miles from the home of L.D. Cooper. The parachute that was requested by D.B. Cooper was not steerable which would make his drop dependent solely on the wind to carry his direction.

LD was not a surveyor in 1971, this was later in his life! on another interview she clearly stated they had to go back into the woods and find the money?

same interview....
I asked Miss Cooper about Dan Cooper’s attitude. He was very polite and cordial to flight attendant Florence Shaffner to whom he passed the note and from whom he ordered his drinks. At no point during the hijacking was he ever loud, angry or aggressive toward the passengers or crew. Miss Cooper relayed to me that he had not been raised that way and it wasn’t in him to be that way towards other people. He was a nice, easy going guy who smiled a lot.

Marla made a different comment stating he was trying to commit suicide doing the hijacking, how does that fit a "easy going guy who smiled a lot" if he was trying to commit suicide, why would he have Dewey on the ground?

I see a charming woman telling a charming story, the problem is that the charming story is just that.....a story!

people are known to do strange things for money or attention! Knoss shows a similar pattern in which I believe he also seeks attention with his "story"

377 you should be able to see this with the remarks she made about the case being closed, shows once again more stretching of the "story"

Re: [mrshutter45] Marla [In reply to] Can't Post

Excerpts from email between Marla and AB of Seattle after her interview, and just before the interview was published at Newsvine:

Robert: I know you believe we've been hard on you, but there were two reasons for this. One was because we felt the timing of your story was convenient and the fact it was (mostly) unsupported, and the other was certain postings you made at Facebook at the time you first came forward. Several people took screenshots and sent them to us. In one, when you are asked what you will do now that the story came out on ABC (August 4th posting, I believe) you said this: 'A lot of capitalizing.' In another, you say: 'In case you missed the big news on ABC...I'm ready to begin my own media frenzy.' There are others.

Marla: I'm an open book. It has never been a secret to anyone I intend to capitalize. If you were the one living person in the world who had an eye witness account of the planning and confession of the sixth largest crime (really? The 6th?)... you would too. You'd be stupid not to. Nobody is pissed off that you, Geoffrey, etc. have written books on the subject. My perspective is unique and so is my experience. That last conversation with my father included him admonishing me "You need to write a book about this." When my memories surfaced in 2009, I realized his words were a deathbed mandate and I have taken it very seriously.

Robert: These statements point to what many people have been saying, that perhaps you were just using the Cooper case to further your own ends.

Marla: Unlike you, I did not choose this story. It chose me. At eight, one has no control over life events. It's pretty cool to be me, I must say! I have several books in my brain, as my friends would tell you. I'm glad this one will impact a lot of people. I plan to sell it huge and will do everything I can to make sure that happens. The more money it makes, the more I have to give, to spend, to do as I will.

Robert: I'm not saying that's true (*statements that could lead people to believe story might be invented for personal gain*), but you have to admit it looks bad.

Marla: Maybe it looks bad to a handful of people, but your little caldron of bitterly debating sleuths does not represent the masses. I don't make my life choices and decisions based on what people may think. I base them on my own convictions...'

On Another Note:

Quote:
'But I have a better mystery for you.

Oh, no. The conspiracy deepens and more become involved. Fogerty uses THREE pickups on a Rickenbacker...and mysteriously...so does John Lennon! They worked in collusion, I think. Cool See pictures for proof!

Re: [RobertMBlevins] Marla [In reply to] Can't Post

"Maybe it looks bad the a handful of people"

while I was checking into her story last year I found that statement to be false as well, lots of people made comments on You Tube, websites stating they didn't like the fact of her doing a book before any real conclusions were made! lots a of people didn't believe Cooper would only change his first name including myself.

I spoke with the gentleman from Strangehistory.org he kept telling me it was not Sisters she was talking about, LD lived in Sparks, Bend and North East California, those three places were in the flight path, but, they would have not had a problem looking for the money since these locations were hundred of miles away in some locations as to where they were looking for Cooper.

I can not say it enough, her story does not hold water any better than what Knoss is claiming! both show the same signs when confronted....lots of anger. nether one has shown any real proof, a strap and a picture is hardly proof of anything!

she claimed he landed on flat farmland, how in the world did he get all bloody and battered? because the FBI claimed he would probably be injured if he survived! most suspects to date keep stating there suspect was injured! if he beat the odds and made it, why does he have to be injured?

... WHICH BRINGS UP A GOOD POINT!

How many of you are there. posting here under
ROBERTMBLEVINS ? Or should I say: Adventure
Books of Seattle? This could explain - everything!

Because, nobody can be up 24/7 posting on
internet websites and still doing house cleaning and
editing and research and cat cleaning and having
any personal time at all left for ... and posting on
the internet in several different styles & memories?

Who starts. Who follows up. Are you a fucking robot?
Its been brought up before by others.

That little event when you were banned of someone
else coming on (in your defense) ... Quade cut that
off quick and gave you an additional two weeks rest -
yes?

How many personalities and memories and personal
lives with networks and resources - can one person
have, this little consortium you keep advertising
here - "Excerpts from email between Marla and AB
of Seattle, after her interview, and just before the
interview was, published at Newsvine:

"Email between Marla and AB of Seattle" ??
"published at Newsvine" ??

And here I thought it was a Robert<Blevins with an
account here at Dropzone - posting individually!
Well fuck me! We've been dealing with a consortium
and no wonder the tall arrogance of all of you
people deceuiving us into believing just one person
was responsible for all this ....KAH KAH!

And you call me a Drama Queen ?

You folks mustbe sitting there laughing your asses
off at how easy it was to deceive a Moderator, a
forum full of people, etc etc etc etc.

Gray said "you" were untrustworthy.

So after two years of this bullshit let me be the first
to welcome AB OF SEATTLE to the Cooper thread on
Dropzone, posting under the name RobertMBlevins!

Wlecome to Dropzone, Captain Obvious.

Hey Moderator Quade!: How many people is
RobertMBlevins, and this is in the rules along with
trolling and taking over a thread? I think you have
been deceived, again!

No small wonder this character keeps saying:
"You've never met me"!

Well yes, I guess that's now true! HOW MANY ARE
YOU? HOW MANY ARE THERE OF YOU?

Is it Nedler? Neddler? We know about Gayla. Come
on Blevinses - you can tell us! All is fair in love and
"publishing". PUBLISHING IS THE WORD YOU USE!

Are you being paid to spam this forum?

In Internet Parlance, isnt it called "NICHE
MARKETING THROUGH THE BACK DOOR" ?

Come on, Captain Obvious, you can tell us!
We are your audience, your market, and your
victims.

Who a I addressing this is very moment?
Mr. Neddler? Gayla? some other guy? the spam
bot software program? the cleaning kid?

This comes to me from the guy with how many thousands of posts on this thread? Instead of going on and on and bad-mouthing nice people like Geoff Nelder and Gayla Prociv, you could have just asked me what you wanted to know.

LOL my style alone should tell you I'm the only one who posts here under my own name. How do I it? Well.... I only work maybe five hours a day helping run the housecleaning business, three to four days a week. The rest of the time I'm either out and about or up here in the office. Today I'm watching the Giants and the Browns. (Damn...Giants just picked off the Browns, too)

You just can't stand it that I pulled the covers on Marla, can you? Too bad. Let me clue you in on a Great Truth about the DZ Cooper thread Georger:

I'm not the ONLY one around here who gets their claims on the Cooper case questioned. And I'm a big believer in the concept that if you provide people enough rope when they are being deceptive, they will eventually find a tree and hang themselves with it.

I also believe you are still angry that I called you out on your phony quote by Geoff Gray. First you said Gray told you this, then you said you heard it from someone else. I can't even remember anymore who you attributed it to now. When you come to me with that type of BS, you have to expect I'm going to dispute it. So unless you are willing to make public an email from Gray where he confirms this, then you should stop quoting him.

The real problem is that your credibility is completely trashed now. Not because of the quote, but because you post up negative crap anytime something appears here with my name on it. It's consistent, which proves you have personal issues.

Sorry to bust your AB conspiracy theory. Yeah, it's only me who posts here. Actually, I think the Lennon/Fogerty Rickenbacker Conspiracy holds more water. At least there is some pictorial evidence. Crazy
