Hi Larry,

I host a web site that is dedicated to the sort of quake prediction posts 
that are being made to the list.

We limit who we allow to post due to obvious abusive communications that 
are possible on this subject, therefore people need to register prior to 
posting - its a one time registration and all e-mail addresses are kept 

Alan Jones is also one of our readers/posters who evaluated predictions.

Anyone interested in posting their predictions should go to this site and
