I absolutely agree. Incidentally, I should add to my previous statements
that I believe I am responsible, mainly through my writings on the
subject, for between 10 and 30 signups, mostly at Alcor several years ago.
Why then am I a bit negative on the subject? Because if we had been
selling any other imaginable service--which could be demonstrated and
proven--the amount of publicity should have resulted in perhaps 1000 to
3000 signups. Right now, the amount of money or time that has to be
expended, compared with the number of recruits, is disappointing--for
reasons already listed in my previous post.
