No, you have assumed that I am. I am actually a free agent who is sympathetic towards the BPOS.
When you regurgitate BPOS material, allude to BPOS published works and then provide an intimate refutation of the other person's claims, I think it's a fair assumption to make!
Sorry Anthony, but we can't all be neutral.
That's cool with me. I don't mind if people do
believe either side. But are you essentially saying that you believe David's account in total? You said that his account "wasn't perfect" before. What did you mean by that?
A quick sum up for my own benefit here. Tony sez he is Oz yet has intimate familiarity with all things spooky on the UK'Y scene. Then whimsical Jenny comes along like a waft of fresh air in all of this gloom. Am I to take it yer a florist by profession, jenny?
Hahaha, I can give you a heads-up on that. I've been familiar with the Case for well over 10 years now. As I've mentioned, my primary interest is in vampires, so, naturally, the Highgate Vampire's crept into those writings more than a few times. My early sources included stuff like Elwood D. Baumann's Vampires
(1977) and J. Gordon Melton's The Vampire Book: Encyclopedia of the Undead
From there, I found out about The Cross and the Stake
. I found out about its online version, and I joined that around 2001, 2002, I think. I was eventually booted off for starting my "rival" forum.
Rest assured, I am
Australian! Born and bred. We're not a big desert wasteland, ya know. We do have books and the Internet here!
Then ya mention a dude who resembles a line out of a silly 60s song the purple people eaters, only this one is a stalking staker, BTW who is he stalkin'? who is he gonna steak?(pun intended.
I presume you mean Demonologist? He's actually Dennis Crawford, International Secretary of the VRS. It's one of several
usernames I've busted him with.
There's speculation (unproven, though), that Demonologist is actually you-know-who
in disguise. And now, I've received a message from a dormant member on here, who claims that Jenny is using an alias as well!
Welcome to the wonderful world of Highgate Vampire Madness!
No mid-nite candle mumbo-jumbo, nosireee, no voodoo dolls with needles stuck in them, etc. Jenny, the description ya gave above sent shiver up me spine just thinkin' 'boot what y'awl conjur up. To put it mildly, ya spooked me.
Well, it was certainly a stark contrast to her other, light-hearted posts. And I'm telling ya, it's a mirror image version of Demonologist and co. Rushing to the Master's defence, but having an agenda all on their own. Same old, same old pattern and it goes to show just how entwined the opposing sides of this feud really are (even their Society names are similar!)
As Nietzsche said, "If you stare into the Abyss long enough the Abyss stares back at you."
