Hi Robert -

Thanks for the positive words - On our site we do welcome constructive 
criticism, not abusive flames - Like I mentioned, this can be a very 
emotional subject and at least I try to have a site that welcomes 
predictions, predictive methods whether they be scientific or 
psychic/sensitive and constructive adult debates.

I think we are all aware that we are a long way from accurately predicting 
100 percent of all earthquakes and may never achieve that type of accuracy, 
but there have been some legitimate inroads and some accurate predictions 

I don't think that anyone who is working on this project would consider 
evacuation of an area - I really can't see evacuating over 9 million people 
out of Los Angeles!  But we can make the public aware enough that everyone 
has food, water, flashlights, batteries, etc prepared and can be a 
supportive community in the case of an earthquake rather than a war zone 
when it does occur.
