Someone seems to be feeling a tad vindictive...
Anyway, Bangin is right to be in disbelief. The Yellow Bamboo groups hasn't even passed the preliminary challange (this seems to have caused some confusion; Randi did send a representative to check them out, but that was all he did: check them out. He was not there to administer the test).

I for one, would like to see them take the Million.
Lets see how it turns. 8)

Personally, I hope that if someone ever wins the million, that someone will be a lot less slimy-sounding than the Yellow Bamboo group.

I certainly would only want them to win if they were geniune. I don't know if they are genuine or if they deserve to win but if they are for real then I would like to see it happen but I question if they will have a fair test.
By the way are they going to be tested for the million anytime soon?

Of course, I didn't seriously expect anyone to say that they would want a fraud to win the million. I only asked because I thought the attitude expressed on this board was a little odd; you hear about a claim that, if true, could revolutionize science, and your first thoughts seem to all run along the lines of, "Take that, Randi!" Just my impression.

In my opinion, the nature of your posts seem to suggest that some of us are very foolish...This is just an observation of mine, which maybe wrong. I believe the problem exists within those kind of suggestions. We've been the underdogs for so long and the title 'cuckoo' has been attached to those of us that believe in 'myths'. I have my beliefs and the next guy has his beliefs. I will not call him a fool because his beliefs do not run parallel to mine...I expect the same in return.
I understand this may not be a problem of yours and you've done a fine job at delivering your questions in a respectful manner...Unfortunately, I would expect to be called a f'in nutcase from someoneelse.

I'm not blaming you for this; there are a number of people about whome I feel much the same way. What I was trying to point out (in my ineptly round-about way) was that to my mind, someone who can knock over another person with his mind is far more interesting than the thought of Randi forking over the million, where-as some posters seemed interested in the former only as a means to the latter. I appologize if I read something into your posts that wasn't there.
I certainly never intended to give that impression. Although I disagree with many of the things I read here, I do not believe that you, or anyone I have conversed with on this board, is foolish (much less a "f'n nutcase").
I agree entirely.

The last line of your last post is indicitive of the remarks made about hoping the money is won. Its an objective remark made based on mood ( impression) and is presented as a general mood amongst the posters. It is not evident that the remarks were made as statement of fact but rather as a feeling about the outcome of the test.
My quote says it all for me about the challenge :
" Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud."
My feelings about Mr James are a moot point . The money will be won or not. Its that simple .
