The above post was also concurrently placed on the sci.life-extension and
sci.cryonics newsgroups. In all 3 locations for 10 days no one made a
response. Paul Wakfer has now done so on those newsgroups with his usual
direct and insightful manner, pointing out numerous misleading statements
and highly exaggerated ones (hucksterism) within the organization's
announcement and even moreso in the surrounding text by the poster.

In addition, so that he cannot be criticized for merely finding fault
without offering a solution, Paul has provided a rewritten version of the
organization announcement that is emotionally sincere and moving while being
factual and non-misleading.
