Please excuse me, but after pages of posts I can find no actual "reactions" with the possible exception of John Kendrick, who has written about the Vancouver Alexei. It would be helpful to actual discussion, I think, if we could know what the actual reactions are, as opposed to a continuous self-congratulatory speculation about what "Anna Anderson supporters" are saying about the discovery.


Oh, did I now?  Well that's certainly news to me!

Just biding my time until the results are in, as we all should be doing, and that's all that I'll be saying about any particular case until that time comes.

Thank you all for being civil and understanding about this discussion.  I am pleased that for the most part, everyone has kept to "just the facts" and not let this become personal or nasty. We will not lock the thread so long as things stay that way.

John - then my mistake - I thought I saw a post from you on this topic. We are all united about wanting to know the test results, that's for sure.

Well, they would have to post here on the Forum for that to work! But, I am curious about this and other things. I was always curious, for example, why people thought AA looked like Grand Duchess Anastasia, so I asked alot of questions, because I just never understood it. PK said, you didn't know her (AA) - and I said, you're right, I didn't. But, I just don't see the resemblance that other people do - still.

Most of the pictures used by supporters to show they look 'alike' are either cleverly posed to imitate a particular photo or pose of AN, or conveniently shadowed or angled so that the real differences between AA and AN don't show. It seems to me the more I see the pics that some of them must have been deliberately posed that way for the effect of making you see a similarity at first glance and hope you won't look further. AA supporters have gotten a lot of mileage out of blurry, shadowy pics. If you really get good, clear pics of AA and AN and compare, the features, especially the shape of the face and particularly the chin look NOTHING alike (however AA does look a lot like FS!) (if anyone wants to see what I'm talking about please see the 'photographic comparisons' section of my website)

I think the trem was actually "veeerrry inetersting" Arte Johnson, wasn't it?
 And Bob, since when do you have clients in Russia?

 A "rumble"? Oh that is way too funny. The way I look at it, anything I post here, or there for that matter, is public domain, and anyone is free to quote, in context. I would only hope they might correct my typos. These forums are not exactly  "private" after all.  I f I were not ready for the whole world to see what I have to say- I certainly would not post it on any forum! I have even noticed some of my post come up on Google  and Wikipedia and I certainly did not put them there!

Thats exactly the point Robert.  Any open public forum is accessible to Google, Yahoo, etc. So those posts are totally public.  They are not "private communications" in any sense of the word.  People must understand that what they write in such public forums, like ours, are read by the entire online world and thus subject to discussion.  If you DON'T want what you say discussed, DON'T post in a public forum. DUH....

I am concerned about the many generalities being tossed around about so called "Anna Anderson supporters". Off the top of my head, I can think of only two people who might qualify as such - Peter Kurth and "Chat Noir". Thus far, I have yet to see a direct quote from either of these individuals about the recent discovery.

Please excuse me, but after pages of posts I can find no actual "reactions" with the possible exception of John Kendrick, who has written about the Vancouver Alexei. It would be helpful to actual discussion, I think, if we could know what the actual reactions are, as opposed to a continuous self-congratulatory speculation about what "Anna Anderson supporters" are saying about the discovery.

The hue and cry from Penny Wilson and Greg King was so strong that Bob has asked that all quotes from their forum be removed.  We have complied with their request in an effort to keep the peace.

Margarita,

It appears that while the K&W forum does not wish THEIR material to be used here they have also agreed that material from our forum will not be copied there.  Please let me know if this is not the case

Margarita,

Now that their forum is read only for regisered memebers, i can't do anything more than ask that material from our forum which was copied to theirs be removed. Penny has assured Bob that such would be the case, and so we trust that this will happen.
