Depends a lot on what it is they are sharing.
Someone sees something in the sky and they do not know what it is, they should come here and post their encounter with as much information as
possible, photographic and video evidence too if they were lucky enough to capture it on a camera (and I mean the raw picture and video).
Sometimes it's going to end up being a very ordinary or mundane thing: ISS passing overhead, Venus on the horizon, etc, simply because they were not
familiar with the night sky.
But sometimes it will be something that defies any explanation. Those events do exist.
Reposting someone's YouTube video doesn't always help, and in fact detracts many times from this field of study. It's because many are out to make
a buck or try to get attention, and will fake things in order to do so, or take advantage of those who will believe anything without proper
People should be leery, and with good reason, as this subject has had way too many people that use it in order to make money or garner fame of some
Even when something has been shown that it is fake, many will not be willing to admit it, especially if they've been very vocal in supporting it.
Let's face it: no one like to admit they were taken in by someone else and duped. It's a hard pill to swallow.
I would say to those that do get taken in by a video, or an image, and are thinking "ZOMG!!! THIS IS THE REAL DEAL!!" only later to find out it was
cgi for a promotional stunt, or to advertise for something, to swallow their pride as continuing to support something that's been debunked quite well
is not helping this area of study. With today's technology that we have, it's very easy to be fooled.
Because of this, even if you are such a believer in UFOs that you eat, drink and breath UFOs everyday, to approach each case with a big fat question
mark. Question EVERYTHING about the case or event. Do not automatically accept everything you see, but instead look at it critically.
If their can be no rational explanation, then it may be the "real deal" then. But if everyone is always swallowing every single thing that they get
shown, it only encourages those who know they can fake something and make money off of you, or get that attention that they are looking for.
The entire subject of Ufology would only benefit if enough people were to stop and actually use a critical eye, instead of believing every single
thing they get shown.
