Sounds like this Ted Roe, with his fancy group and possibly a paid researcher, career threatened by a guy who does the research out his heart and past time.

Funny thing, and ironically is that to get a better understanding of the phenomena, is going to require a large amount of shared effort, time and resources as well as honesty. The government alone with all it resource and powers, is possibly being fed bread crumbs by the phenomena and incredible elusive nature and is possibly frustrated to the point that they can't stay on top, or have any possible clue about the phenomena just to gain a home field advantage.

They might have better description, key indenifiers and what not, but are probably just as close to understanding the next newbie trying to look it up.

All the while the phenomena visits or is only seen by the average workers/civilian when soldiers or scientists only get ideas of it.

Don't feel bad about it Isaac, they are just irritated that they didn't make any taxes off your public work, and it not worth risking you livelihood ether. End of one chapter, leads to a new one.

Regarding Erica Lukes.

inceptionradionetwork.com...

This interview is incendiary in places and contains serious allegations and implications regarding Ufology, MUFON and Certain UFO Net Radio personalities.

In a nutshell Erica Lukes and Lorien Fenton discuss

Sexual abuse/stalking allegations of a certain California based net radio host

Sexism in Ufology

Failure of Jan Harzen MUFON Director to act upon allegations

Race Hobbs of KGRA is a felon and lied about it when joining MUFON

Others high up in Ufology and MUFON are also predatory and there is a culture of sexual predators at conferences, within MUFON and within UFO net radio.

Create a new net identity, continue your work, but disseminate the information to the net via a few/several trusted proxies or seperate identities (nobody will believe that any one person could accomplish what Koi did... So using only one proxy/identity would blow your cover in an instant. But 5 or more people? Or better yet, a coming and going ROTATION of 5 or so people...) It won't be the same, but, maybe there is a way..? At least, until this all blows over?

Is it absolutely beyond the point of reasoning with this guy?

Or perhaps some kind of boycott could be arranged. Inform everyone, "if he is willing to ruin this man's life over something so petty, just imagine what he might do to You, should you just happen to slip up and somehow find yourself on his badside? The courageous, hardworking people in our field of work and research have already faced enough intimidation from the government among other 'entities', we simply cannot stand for it amongst each other! It's time to put your foot down on this matter, Here, and ,Now! Make THIS the issue where you make a stand, where you rise with your fellow brothers and sisters and say NO MORE. How much more ground are we expected to give away to malevolent forces, human or otherwise, government or civilian, which aim to keep us in the dark, misinformed and confused? Because that is what you are promoting when you stand off to the side and say to the world that you are okay with this happening and will not lift a finger to stop it. I appeal to the part inside you that wants to know the truth, when I recommend that Nobody work with this person in Any way, shape or form until he ceases and desists from his policy of terrorising those he disagrees with, now and at any time in the future, in the form of a public, written, and spoken statement/promise to do so." This boycott should also be extended to those who choose to work with him, in Any way shape or form.

Having had a very busy couple of months, I'm only finding out about this now.

IK, your threads and diligence deserve all the praise and commendations given already, and then some. It is threads such as yours why I have chosen to read ATS over the years. You have been a leading light in what can be a very dark field. Sadly it is entirely understandable why you feel the need to now retire, and I wish you all the very best for the future; family must always come first beyond any hobby.

Perhaps the future can be lighter once more, once the dust settles and certain organisations (and their chief executives) are widely discredited and consigned to mere footnotes in the annuls of UFO history.

Until then, very best wishes.

Pseudonyms are unethical? A research-active British neuroscientist has been highlighting important findings and controversies writing under the name Neuroskeptic. In the linked article he provides example of other people doing legitimate work under pseudonyms.

Yet I don’t see the problem here. While it’s true that most academics only publish under their real names, they could publish anonymously or pseudonymously; I did, and many others have done so before me. Anonymity is not a privilege that I’m jealously guarding for myself; on the contrary I have long argued in favor of anonymous or pseudonymous discourse as a right for everyone.

I'm still peeved about this.
Looked up what Erica and Teds contribution has been, the best description I can give is "UFO-tainment".

Besides their 'pay for view NAARCAP research' scheme, Ericas headshot PR spamming, they hung out together in the desert doing "research" for a few nights....their contribution is astounding, should we ever lose them like we lost Isaac, truly we could not come back from such a blow.

So this what we are left with. UFOtainers.

Oh no, a respected friend to many of us here for sure. I support whatever he chooses to do as research is in his blood, it is who he is and so if whoever the guy is making a fuss (I really do not know who he is, never heard of him) will ultimately be discredited as he is just trying to garner fame off of Issac's hard work and love of the field. Anyone who is serious will back Issac rather than the group who is causing disruption.

We are close, real close and so this can be expected, it causes people to distract from the path.

JUST in Case Issac reads this thread...

Good energy vibes being sent your way

Follow your heart, you KNOW this too shall pass...

Love and supportive hugs

Yep. And that's the really frustrating part of UFOlogy to me. In a field that is already dubious, highly scrutinized, and has clearly identifiable stigma attached to it, what is needed more than anything else is researchers like Isaac. Methodical, fact-based, thorough, and rigorous. But that doesn't necessarily sell books, clicks, ratings, and hype, so what we are left with in this era is largely - though not universally of course - entertainment, and docufiction.

UFOlogy, at least in what passes for anything approaching the mainstream today, has been relegated to the equivalent of Mermaid: The Body Found on the "History" channel. *sigh*

Seeing this topic come up again reignited my frustration with it. And those who inflicted this blow and loss don't even care, and believe they're utterly in the right. So petty, so shortsighted imho.

Peace.

The hype known as ufology might be dead, but the investigations behind it continues, I have recieved files lately that quite frankly wil scare the poop out of most of you. And these are old files.

Issac, we will miss you!

The (final?) UFO item I'm currently considering writing about various loose ends is now likely to include the largest collections of UFO material I've helped share, by a considerable margin.

I'll need some help. I may start a separate brief thread about the assistance that would be required.

A little late to the story, IK, but you have my full support and sympathy. It is a terrible thing when someone threatens to use one's passion as a threat to one's employment when the former has no real impact on the latter.

As a Gray's man myself (phrasing chosen to allow for the inevitable UFO-related pun) I raise a toast to your hard work and accomplishments in the field.

The UFO topic is nothing to be ashamed of and he does excellent research with evidence to back it up. The topic is no more taboo or considered nutty, so I'm not sure why Isaac has the fear of negative backlash. The "alien in a jar" people here that think it would cause harm to Isaac's job don't give him enough credit.


Barristers are self-employed. Every client you scare away represents one less mortgage payment covered, in an industry that already goes through cycles of good months and bad months. If you specialise (and more so in some fields than others) then you really can be made or broken by your reputation.

You might not consider it a taboo or nutty subject, but there's enough people who disagree to make it a genuine concern.

So great to hear!
Isaac make it an epic that puts Tolstoy to shame!

Count me in for any help you need with the project.

ISSAC!

It is fantastic to see you post once more!

While I understand your issues with things as they stand, I would still urge you not to be a stranger. You have my respect at the very least, no doubt that of many of the members here as well. We have your back, for what it is worth, I believe.

Probably the biggest overstatement I've come across in my entire life. Hahahaha

Did he actually leave yet?
