	For the record, when I first started inquiring about contracting for
suspension, a little under a year and a half ago, Alcor's membership
manager, Brian Shock, did EXACTLY what Robert Ettinger suggests. In fact, I
was a little puzzled by his reluctance to comment on other organizations,
so I pushed a little. He simply replied that his opinion was obviously
expressed by the fact that he was signed-up with Alcor, but that he did not
want to negatively comment on other organizations, since, in the small
world of cryonics, attacks on one organization can end up causing harm to
all of them
