Edmond Wollmann's Subpoena to SkepticTank.org

I recently noted SkepticTank.org has updated its article Does Astrology Cause Insanity?" which included many references and email posts of Edmond Wollmann.

In spite of Wollmann's recent crazy subpoena to it, SkepticTank.org isn't intimidated by phony copyright infringement threats as some of the other sites have been.
I've noted a few of my blog's former links are now broken due to people being intimidated to remove information. Edmond Wollmann can be considered a public figure for having a book on Amazon while having also been on television programs in the 1980's. Wollmann's posts, emails and letters can easily be referenced under "fair use" copyright laws.

I don't necessarily agree that astrology causes insanity but the article is worth noting. If one scrolls down the article, one can see how Edmond Wollmann contacted the FBI complaining about his website being dislodged at the top of the search engines and all kinds of bizarre delusional paranoid type of stuff.

Here's a small blurb from the article.
It would be interesting to see if belief in astrology for long periods of time can cause paranoid delusions or expressions of other cognitive difficulties. Such an academic study might be able to explain astrologers who express unusual notions such as Mr. Edmond H. Wollmann's unfortunate public comments. Take a glance at this particular quote provided under the terms of "Fair Use" directly from one of Mr. Wollmann's many Internet web pages.
