Actually, the imposters are what keeps the Romanov interest in the news. If it wre not for wanting to prove them false,  perhaps the interest in finding the real remains would have not had such an impetus?
Yes I agree Robert, if it was not for these imposters and a mystery for the century to find the bones people would not be interested in the romanovs as much. But I do think all this made them more famous.

Actually, you all forget that long long ago, Bear divulged that she has some super secret oh so mysterioso curioso family legend that she is pursuing. So maybe AA wasnt' AN but she HAS an agenda... by her own admissions.

My interest/agenda, for what it's worth, is British intelligence operations in Russia including involvement in the Rasputin murder and plans to rescue TIF (and no,they did not succeed and escape to Ceylon or any other fancy location - sorry).

Good points all Phil.  :)
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow ---- What a ride!!!"

Oh, yes, AA believers have posted here, no need to mention the ones who are gone, most recently ferrymansdaughter.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I have not gone.  I have been away for a couple of weeks on holiday and moving house - and what a time to be without a computer! (Yes I had a lovely time and the new house is great, thank you for asking.)

You want my reaction?  I am still catching up with all the posts here, but I simply don't know what to think.  Maybe I was wrong and she wasn't Anastasia.  I am still not convinced she was Francisczka, which was always one of my issues,  but where does that leave me?  Puzzled.  Let's wait until testing is over and then see.  I would like to know where the rest of these two bodies are though.

As I have said on this board before, if I'm wrong, I'll come on here and say so.    I still think the case of AA is the most intriguing mystery I've come across.

I have just removed a string of very OT comments, and will remind users that if you have something to say to only one other user that has nothing to do with the topic at hand, you should do so via PM and not posting in the general area.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Our member AGR Bear politely asked to be left out of this particular discussion. Yet, many of our posters chose to disregard what I consider to be a perfectly reasonable request on her part and instead continued to discuss her as if she had said nothing. I don't think this is respectful, so I have modified or removed all such mentions of this member on this thread as much as possible.

To those members who have a problem with this, I do apologize. However, I would like to point out that I would do exactly this for any of you who speak up and say "leave me out of this one".

I will also delete any further speculation about what "AA supporters" as some of you are want to call them may or may not believe due to the recent discovery.

As Rob said, kindly stay on topic.

Also, while you are at it, you should probably remove other OT comments, like the ones about the KW forum, otherwise it may look like you pick an choose...

Thanks, Helen.

The KW Forum inso far as the fact that many (who would be labeled by people here as "AA supporters" despite views to the contrary) have posted reactions would be okay. Anything outside of that would be OT, and I will try to go in and remove any of those if here.

I recognize that in spite of tremendous efforts to be fair to everyone, there are still going to be those who think I would "pick and choose". Ah, Voltaire, yes, I would defend to the death your right to say such things....

I have changed the name of the thread, as the original name seems to have caused controversy. This thread is about what those who do not believe that EVERYONE in the Imperial Family died that night in Ekaterinburg now think and say. Some people feel that by being discussed here, they are automatically "supporters of AA".  I think we need to make clear that that is NOT the thrust fo the conversation. People still doubt these findings, make serious statements and accusations publicly on the subject, and I believe that this is a fair and reasonable topic to discuss, so long as it is not personal, attacking or violates our policy.  As we have been asked not to directly quote or cite anyone from the K&W Forum, we will respect that request and ask that no direct quotes or personal attribution be made.  The content IS however fair game, and I beleive this to be reasonable.

Bear asked to be left out of the discussion, as she does NOT believe that AA was ANR. Fair enough.  HOWEVER, my point is this, Bear NOW STILL disputes that everyone died that night and is posting very pointed questions in our forum and elsewhere on the internet which clearly indicate that she has SERIOUS doubts that the recent findings are genuine, legitimate, etc. . Insomuch that these posts ARE both here and on the King and Wilson site, which Lisa has said is fair game to discuss without quoting, I think it only reasonable that my post will stand. I"m sorry, but you can not say something in a public forum on the internet in one place then "pick and choose" where and when your statements can be discussed. So long as posts remain ON TOPIC, they are fine.

I think that's fair enough then.

I agree that this is a reasonable compromise.

I just hope it does not get crazy again - and I will review the posts so that anything that is OT is removed. Good choice on changing the name of the topic, Rob.

Is there anyone other than claimant supporters (Anastasia or Alexei) who are questioning the recent discovery? I haven't seen anyone else doubt it.
