Grow up, Mr Philips!

I really don’t want to write much more about Don Philips and the GSI UK team because I have much more important stuff to be concentrating on but Don just doesn’t seem to understand my points and I want to round things off with a final post here. Trystan Swale has written about Don and GSI here and here, and in the comments of the first article Don has responded in the same way he did on my blog – by missing the point and attacking the critic rather than answering their criticisms.

To make matters worse Don is now using the video of the ‘Ghost Investigations Today’ panel from the QED conference in 2011 as proof that I am  not open minded and not to be taken seriously. He is doing this on Facebook pages where I cannot comment or reply. When I did initially reply to the post on the GSI Paranormal UK Facebook page I was deleted from the page and my comment removed.

I believe Don and the GSI team have too much invested in what they do to even consider that they might be incorrect. Not allowing me to respond to his criticism of me is poor form. This is how open to criticism Don is.

Don, if you’re reading this you should understand that there is a difference between bitching about somebody and offering constructive criticism. When you allow the person you are writing about to openly respond to what has been written that is fair, which is how I have acted in my criticism of you and GSI. However, when you write about someone and don’t let them respond like you have with me, you’re just being bitchy. Grow up.

  1. See, still a hint of the Rather Friendly Skeptic in there somewhere 😉

    The complete opposite of Mr. Phillip’s comments- open, polite and not in anyway childish.

  2. This man really needs a hobby, quilting or fishing maybe, just something to occupy his time so he can stop chasing your posts.
