You're absolutely right. I'm not condoning it in anyway--from my perspective, there's already been so many people that have come out and said they
were abducted, saw a ship land, had a couple of beers with someone from Venus, whatever. Never a picture, video footage, or even a bar receipt. I
understand perfectly well that someone's got a story they want to tell, they want an explanation of some kind, whatever. And even if one were to
think of grabbing their camera as they were being extricated from their bedroom in the middle of the night, I really doubt the Greys (or
whom/whatever) would be understanding enough to stop. I'm sure they have several other abductions to do that night, and waiting for everyone to grab
a roll of film would completely throw their schedule off.
It's the stories of re-occuring events that I find problems with. It's kind of hard to believe someone when they say "this happens every day" and
then all of a sudden it stops, right when people are asking for footage. Or their camera breaks or their scanner is in the shop.
But then, what can be done about it? It's a hard subject for some people to broach, and if the boards start getting too skeptical, then some
people with valid testimony, perhaps even evidence of some kind, might be scared away. Of course, at the same time, by reading people's threads and
asking for more evidence or more details, the people who are just telling stories for the sake of telling them are getting more attention and they'll
keep on doing it. Is there a solution?
