OP, I agree to some extent with your post. There is that impending feeling of seeing yet another product of a wanna be sfx artist when we click on the
latest Youtube link, etc. but does it stop us clicking?
I'm as hacked off as the next man/woman about all of the CGI offerings, yet will still seek out the latest thread promoting the latest footage. More
times than not, they're immensley dissappointing and a waste of bandwidth. They don't, however, affect my belief system, and nor will they. I have
faith that these attempts at continually trying to fool the general public will eventually fail, because I don't believe the public (apart from a
small percentage) is that gullible.
But before that, what the hoaxers are managing to do, imo, is feeding the hardcore, unshakeable skeptics with material that "proves" UFOs,
and related subjects, aren't real. With so much fake footage, what chance the real McCoy when it (hopefully) turns up?
With such a massive backlog of CGI, that ellusive, real piece of footage, and the photographer, will have their work well and truly cut out trying to
prove their case. As far as we know, hoax videos may well have caused a witness to simply delete their photos or video of a real event because of fear
of being called a fake.
