Make a circle, then have your friends out it as your work on Facebook two days later. What a thoroughly pointless endeavor.
A new circle has just been reported at Manton Drove, near Marlborough in Wiltshire, and we rather like it.
With a dreary lack of surprise, however, RACCF and CCPMT – which in many respects are the same page – have given it a trouncing. Which tells you a very significant thing. RACCF and CCPMT only like crop circles which were made by them or by their friends. You can be sure that any circle which they put the boot into is one they know nothing about.
We’ve always found Report A Crop Circle Formation’s and Crop Circles The People The Mystery The Truth’s ‘turn over tables in temples’ attitude somewhat at odds with the selectiveness of their targets. We were therefore very interested earlier in the summer when Crop Circles Anonymous asked CCPMT why The Crop Circle Connector were exempt from their criticism, despite the Connector clearly having profited from crop circles (as an aside, we’d remind you that RACCF and CCPMT still insist they have no connection, despite sharing the same attitudes, allies, enemies, outlook, and unique linguistic style. We don’t believe them; whether you do is up to you).
Here’s Crop Circles Anonymous’ post:
This was. we’d imagine, prompted by this post by CCPMT on May 5 2014:
…so low we’re already digging into the floor, CCPMT reply.
When friends fall out, it can often provide useful ammunition against existing enemies. Screen shots from CCPMT, wherein Matthew Williams and CCPMT accuse Steve Alexander of paying circle makers to make circles for him to photograph. They’ve made this accusation before, and to date have provided no evidence whatsoever to substantiate their claim. We agree with Darren Francis’ comments here. Making crop circles is a choice, not an obligation. If CCPMT have proof Steve has ever commissioned and paid anybody to make a circle, they should provide it. If not, they should shut up and apologise to Mr Alexander for such slander. Neither of these things will happen.
The latest post from Crop Circles Anonymous is worth quoting in full:
”And the disgraceful persecution of Monique Klinkenbergh continues.
The attached was posted on the ridiculously named Crop Circles The People The Mystery The Truth page on 1 August.
The assumption that someone would only give up their business and move to Wiltshire in pursuit of crop circles if they intended to monetise the subject says more about the author of this invective than it does about Ms Klinkenbergh. Not everybody’s motivations are mercenary.
‘We want circles fully back in Wiltshire’, you say. The use of the word ‘fully’ here would seem an acknowledgement that the absurd and self-serving ‘no circles in Wiltshire’ campaign has been a failure, as – ironically – circle makers do not support it.
‘If you f***k then [sic. – we hope] things will get back to normal’? It is evident to anybody who cares to look that crop circles in Wiltshire were being routinely cut by farmers before Ms Klinkenbergh began her ‘access pass’ scheme. The reasons for this have been rehearsed elsewhere and cannot be laid at Ms Klinkenbergh’s door. They cannot get back to the ‘normal’ you would wish if Ms Klinkenbergh ‘f***’s because they were not ‘normal’ before her arrival.
You have a very limited view of crop circle history, which seems to only encompass the last five or six years. Those of us who have been on the scene for much longer are well-aware that a wider spread of crop circles across the country, rather than an overwhelming concentration in Wiltshire with occasional stragglers elsewhere, was ‘normal’. The normal you seek is in itself abnormal.”
