Sorry for this long post as i am a newbie although I have stalked this site for so long. I can't place my own topic yet so I had to wait for a topic I
felt I could reply. I have been interested in the UFO phenomenon for many years and on my journey came across so many You Tube channels which I used
for my own benefits. I have watched 100's of hours of videos and researched on many famous cases. I came across ST10 many moons ago
the course of time he has built a large following 1 Million subs now but that took a lot of time and effort. So many of his videos are collected
through people mailing him and he then turns them into his videos whilst the get out clause is "I received this". What he does not do is research and
investigate the validity of the information he has coming in. He is a one man band and he is NOT a minor. The other thing is that he has set up Google
alerts and then reports on that. I honestly do not care that he is making a lot of money through this. I have challenged him on several occasions with
no response. Someone has posted that he is like a newspaper tabloid and that is bang on the nail. He is not a serious researcher. People have the
choice to watch or not watch not just his channel but the issue is the creditably and the knock on effect. The other point is that this type of
vehicle is a reactive process. Reporting on something that HAS happened. This is what happened to myself. I was an armchair ufologist, a student of
ufology. Waiting for that video that would be proof, reading an investigative report that would lead to disclosure
Well that is not going to
happen. I decided that I needed to get off my ass research and investigate. I needed a plan. The first thing I wanted to do is to tap into to the data
that was already out there. Visual or written. I studied (But not an expert) on statement analysis and body language. I then became a MUFON
investigator which gave me tools in investigating techniques. This also gave me loads of sightings and people to interview. I studied videos of
people who has given sworn testimony in the Greer NPC disclosure project 2001 etc. All of this again is reactive and not proactive. So what is being
proactive? For me it is gathering reactive information and looking for trends to predict. IMHO if there is anything visiting this planet there has to
be a purpose/objective. They are not
Galactic tourist or voyeurs. If they are here as negative forces surely after 100's or even 1000's of
years something would of happened. I am sure someone here is going to give me a reason why they haven't. Issac Koi is one of my top posters but Issac
i reach out to you to ask with all the information you have, have you ever looked into the data to look for trending against the sightings?
Another thing about being proactive, there is a post on here about Ouija Board and contact. I read the posts and some people said, " Do not go there"
and "It is a parlour game load of rubbish" Not any that said hmm I will give that a go. So, not that I believe in it, ( although have dabbled,) I
went and bought one a couple of days ago. I could of rubbished it and not try but that would not prove anything. You have to investigate it. It may
not work but at least I can say that i have tried. I have 14 questions at the ready to contact, something or someone. If contact is made (So many
assumptions I have listed) I have 3 questions that I call validation. Some question I do not know the answer to that I would have to research it. I
have given it a lot of thought but if nothing happens what have I lost? £10 and some time...so what.
So, back to the OP, ST10 reports on reactive sightings without true research, the individual has a choice to watch or not. So many so called
Ufologist, (Friedman, Greer, Dolan, Pope etc etc) are just regurgitating material. OMG Roswell when will that die? We now have a book called the,
"Children of Roswell" soon to be grand children. If you want the answer you have to hunt for it and not sit on your ass. If this means sitting on a
hill in the freezing pouring rain after you hit a trend so be it. If you get a visit from the MIB so be it.
I have lost my mojo over the last 6 months but I would love to be a member of a team that wants to go and hunt for whatever is out there, if there is
anything out there. Do deep research and pour over the information to look for trends. Sorry for the long post but I cannot start off a topic. BTW
how many posts do I have to do so I can start off a topic?
Peace be with you and remember we are here to get to the truth even if it is above top secret
