Best Jr. is in the SAME category (but as I believe all including Best should keep researching and bring forth any good suspect or keep stacking good evidence for their suspect they have or can develop-it's an unsolved cold case like any other save it's fame and that fits this scenario) as all other 3,000 plus Z suspects in that NONE of them are backed by forensics-no DNA/fingerprints; solid judiciously verifiable Z -connected evidence; just life event coincidences; similarities to the Z composite; similar,but also dissimilar writing characteristics or styles; similar likes/dislikes as it relates to what is known about Z; antidotal reports-theories; similar background to what is known and surmised about Z; and my list can go on and on.
When you comb through the population of a unsolved case like this more and more 'suspects' will arise like with JTR case. The law of averages is activated. You will find similars in most categories for judging a suspect.
One can 'believe' even fervently(and that's OK it shows sincerity) they solved the case and their guy is in fact Zodiac, but that will only satisfy the Z suspect researcher on a personal level and some followers - not the legal requirements for a judicial solution, like for example, in the case of the Green River Killer.
As far as this Z site -and any opinions from whoever they might be it -will continue as long as funds are available as with any site; but it was the original or pioneering Z site headed by TV that has spawned inestimable valuable research and discoveries into the Z case even giving free publicity to new suspects and books as with Mr. Best. New suspects and books in the media will always give a jump to any- in this case-Zodiac site especially if it's as informative as this one.
There are many who never post and will not do so in the future for various reasons; but this site is a great and grand source of good Z research and documents many of which are original along with other pertinent facts -so many do read and visit the site. I don't think we should judge the value of a site by how many posters are posting.
Tom against all odds -has done a excellent ongoing work no matter what one thinks about him as a 'person'- it is his direct work on Zodiac he wants to be judged by not his personality. That is shallow thinking to the max. We see and read so much of this today in the media.
