Hi Macteague and Jim, you guys don't seem to get it so I'll try again.
I am a researcher who can assist a licensed treasure holder of the relivant Oak Islans property to recover stored items from below his property. This ammounts to what in my view will be many valuable artifats. If you were in my place would you disclose your finding to the public for nothing and risk becoming superflous to requirements, I don't think so.
For your information I previously achieved the impossible by persuading Blankenship and Nolan to work together on MY PROJECT based on MY THEORIES only to have our offer rejected with distain by the Triton Alliance president David Tobias. It was essentually because I did not have a degree and possibly because he did not like his former friend Blankenship being involved at all, he later tried to cut both Dan and I out by approaching Fred Nolan privately and his offer was rejected.
Some years later I tried to privately help Blankenship in a way which would not benifit Tobias at all, he signed a confidential agreement with me/us which I hoped would get him ten percent of recovered artifacts and Hennigar has seen it, and Fred rejected the idea. The point you two guys do not seem to grasp is that I don't have to tell any of you anything. I/we and especially Fred Nolan do not need Dan Blankenship and the Michigan Group at all, I was trying to include them out of compassion, that may seem to you like time to play the violins but it's true non the less.
Now what O'Conner has done with his deliberate interfering in our business interest is that he has finally ruined the slim chance I had of including the Michiagan group and Blankenship in the only treasure on Oak Island, which in my view is on Fred Nolan's property.
It was important for me personally to at least try to prevent those poor guys wasting a lot of money at the east end of the island by offering them some alturnative interest, if we failed in our attempt they could try their own project as they had planned and they would have only lost only time not money.
That the writer O'Conner has recorded the activaties of the owners is not in dispute, it served it's purpose in showing the island was still active in some ways after years of apparent inactivaty and consiquenty increasing public apathy. The problem is now his fued with me has caused him to inadvertantly end any chance of my ever helping what Fred calls the other side, they won't stop on my say advise so what can I do, blaim the right man.
D'Arcy stirring Fred up doesn't help matters and my hands are tied now, the point is that if we don't get our chance the group are going to lose a lot of money thanks to D'Arcy O'Conner's smear tactics. You can come back with glib replies and sarcasum but time will tell who is/was right.
I predict that another failed treasure hunting attempt around the Money Pit area will be the final nail in the coffin of Oak Island and I would not be at all surprised to see all future applications for treasure trove licences for the place being rejected.
But for the actions of a few near sighted individuals who treat stupidity as a viture it could have so different with Nova Scotis as a whole benifiting more than any individual, there are none so blind as those who will not see.
