Mates’ Rates # 2

Why is it that the worst circle makers often make the harshest critics? We’ve seen this before with Matthew Williams. And as I noted in a previous post, the mates’ rates policy is alive and well at Crop Circle Wisdom, as can be demonstrated by their comments on the Chesterton Windmill circle.

CCW ChestertonIn truth, CCW have no idea where this circle came from, and their comments about makers and design and intentions are mere supposition, as is the assertion that they ‘only report to Steve’ (and if that were the case, how comes Nick Bull got there so quickly?).

There’s nothing wrong with the line-work in the Chesterton Windmill circle. It’s certainly straighter than the line-work in that crass ‘door’ for which CCW have nothing but praise because it was made by their mates, as the following picture by Nick Bull shows.


I don’t know why I let this stuff bug me. In future, whenever I see CCW criticising other people’s crop circles, I will have only a one word response. It’s ‘caterpillar’.


I present Matthew Williams’ appalling series of posts aimed at David Butler, farmer of the Martinsell Hill field, without comment. The reader can make up their own mind. I can’t help but feel that if somebody like Monique Klinkenbergh or Paul Jacobs had stepped in instead of Williams, though, future formations on Mr Butler’s land could have been saved. He even seems agreeable. As things stand now, another swathe of Wiltshire is now out of bounds to crop circles.

Mates’ Rates

It’s good to see that RACCF’s mates’ rates philosophy of crop circle discussion continues on Crop Circle Wisdom. Here’s a screenshot from the site regarding the recent Longwood Warren formation.37174846_10156254673710937_7499434814928322560_nThe Kingweston circle also has visible construction lines and centre components of differing proportions, as one can see from the photo below by Nick Bull, but Mr Pyrka considers it the work of ‘the pros’ or ‘the MASTER’ and thus beyond criticism. DJI_0482Wisdom shmisdom.

Words Of Advice

Since I’m not in the business of outing circle makers, some words of advice in lieu of a screenshot. It is generally considered wise when constructing a formation not to post the diagram on your Instagram account beforehand.

The ‘Wisdom’ Of Hackpen Hill

Crop Circle Wisdom may be one of the most ironically named websites out there. Each update sees Andrew Pyrka blunder his way through half-truth, conjecture, and plain invention. Does anybody even read it anymore, other than those like myself who want to amuse themselves at whatever cobblers he’s come out with this time? The man increasingly seems an irrelevance, a lone voice hectoring into the void.

Still, CCW is always good for entertainment if nothing else. One of the more recent posts, on “the darkness of Hackpen Hill formations !”, is a good case in point. Here, we see Mr Pyrka take a false and fanciful notion and run with it for ten paragraphs of bullshit.



Andy, you have no idea who made these circles. You’re guessing, and you’re wrong. Not only are you barking up the wrong tree – barking being the operative word – you’re not even in the right forest. As such your entire article is farcical. It did make me laugh so hard I nearly shat myself, though.
