Joe and Richard, thank you for your inquiry and concern.
I made the decision in February to "retire" from any further active research into AREA 51.
Although I must admit that the nasty computer virus that I got in January had some role in my decision, ultimately it was largely my own personal decision to "retire".
There was no presssure on me from anyone or any group.
I commend Joerg for this great website and will continue to stop by here for any new info.
