Tampa Bay Skeptics Executive Council "Position Statement" on Renier

Renier's local free weekly newspaper's November 2006 cover story about her book, its first follow-up article, and its April 2007 article about Renier's court loss to Merrell over the book

View the attack upon me by a character named Peter Duffie -- This venomous and irrational attack was originally posted in the spring of 1998 on Duffie's "Psyzone" web pages, which are no longer posted but which can still be seen here (archived, with some funky punctuation characters and missing the graphics). When Duffie's site was abandoned in late 2000 or early 2001, these pages were moved to Renier's site, first here (on her old site -- again, these are old/archived pages absent the graphics), and later here on her newer site (from which these pages were removed in June 2006, I suspect at the recommendation of her attorney, though as you can see they are still available, archived and sans graphics). Before deciding to host Duffie's attack, Renier had insisted to me that "Mr. Duffie is not an associate of mine, nor do I have an association with his site," although that obviously changed somewhere along the way.

Hear three threatening messages left on my telephone answering machine (not that I am suggesting Renier was in any way involved . . . )

This "Global Net Research" website appeared in March 2015, two months after John Merrell took down his anti-Renier site. It is run by what it calls "a fresh management team including global researchers and investigators . . . including those in our homelands outside the United States." Merrell tells me that though the site is not his, he does support it and any information attributed to him is with his approval.
