    Have we seen this?

    http://is1.websearch.com/_1_2FETUUM0...FDBTLpub2.html

    I came across this quite by accident. I haven't read it all yet, but seems to be interesting.
    This is my opinion only

    I've never seen that one before. It's interesting. I wish the author had written more in the conclusions.
    This is only my opinion

    Let the focus be on Madeleine

    writing

    This looks like mostly junk science. Using a note that was obviously camouflaged to some degree the examiner can write a 5 page report on the author's emotional characteristics? And they would probably have you believe that they are an "expert" in this "field" also.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.

    Many of the conclusions could have been drawn intuitively from the content and syntax of the note without the detour to "divination" from handwriting mechanics.

    If one shoots in the dark enough times one is likely to hit a target but that does not confirm the claims to vision.

    What in the world could "compulsively controlled" mean? This is similar to EasyWriter's stuff; a sense of meaning without the ability to use words to express the meaning.

    The author should have just written it's opinion without the shell game.

    WOW...THANKS for the url/read...very very interesting/informational;here's an interesting read sub-url from your url:
    http://www.examina.net/ramseyen.htm
    In addition to the 9 pages of graphic comparisons contained in this website, it is interesting to notice the presence of further matching data: for instance both the ransom note (start of page 1, words bussiness and posession) and John Ramsey's handwriting sample (words insteller and occassions) show what appears to be more than a slip of spelling.

    Without getting into the details of content analysis or plunging into a full evaluation of the vocabulary used throughout the note - a long, complex study already put forward and discussed with the colleagues in the USA - the ransom letter clearly presents several terms reminiscent of a technological and computer idiolect: instructions, account, monitor, execution, denied, scanned, electronic devices, 99% chance...
    At the time of Jon Benet death her father John Ramsey was president of a thriving computer distribution company (Access Graphics Inc.)
