Gordon Rugg doesn't need to progress this any further. He has all the
he needs. He even proferred a challenge by producing his own enciphered MS
using his method. This is offered as a distraction from his lack of real
evidence .
Probably hoping that everyone would leap to the challenge giving him even

I would happily support Gordon Rugg in his efforts if he hadn't been so
opportunistic. His provenance is so thin it would slice carrots. He has
no transcription of his output as far as I know and the onus is on him to do
if he wants any sort of critical review. Unfortunately this is an age of
'Fifteen Minutes Of Fame' and evidence is scarcely required. I get annoyed
all this considering the years of hard work that many people have
voluntarily. It takes quite an effort to dig out all the background to this
