Well I'm still confused. The only thing about halfway down that page pertinent to the image is Blaine91555's post which seems to be in support of the OP's assertion that the picture wasn't done in Paint or similar computer program.

It will take more than "It was done in MS Paint, and thats all there is to that" to counter that, IMHO.

What an assumption! What's "bad" or even all that "unscientific" about sending someone to ATS--one of the sites on the net with a wealth of quality information about the topic--how many better places are there for the therapist to refer the dad to--to help him get up to speed generally on the topic???

Sorry for the confusion, one of our senior staff labeled this a HOAX last night based on proof the "drawing" was done in MS Paint which can be seen in a post about half way down this page, www.abovetopsecret.com...

I have seen strange things in my life and if I stepped outside tomorrow and saw a UFO but did not have the chance to get a photo, I would like to think I could come here and share the experience. But could I?
No matter how well I told the story, I would only have a story and thus be called a liar and a hoaxer, have my thread labeled HOAX and possibly be banned.

Apparently this "proof" isn't as clear to some of the members as it is to you.
Can you please site the specific post which "proves" the drawing was done in MS Paint?
You would think that as the owner of htis site you would be a little bit into customer service and address the concern of many of your subscribers.

So the next few nights I went outside by myself for a few hours, and I'll be damned if I didn't see one of this shield things he was talking about. It looked like one of those flying saucers from a cartoon or something.

In that picutre of Captain America... why does he have a KKK member running on his chest, instead of a star

Does the drone situation really have us all so jaded that we give nothing and nobody a chance to prove themselves anymore? So many here have become 'professional debunker's' that many remind me of that guy from Skeptic Magazine who was on Larry King Live who I would love to punch in the mouth for being such a know it all arrogant prick.
No chance was given to TL to show us anything else, and here comes the HOAX tag.
You know, it really bothers me that the HOAX / BAN hammer comes down so hard these days but someone who post blurry, 30+ year old photos of the moon ( cough JOHN LEAR cough ) gets no such HOAX tag, but is PRAISED and given his own forum.

HOAX = 90% sure, Hoax = 65%... I dont know but something needs to be done. HOAX should be a done and dusted thing, something where we can all see the why, in this thread there is none. The 'Texas in Canada' guy hasnt been given much time to come up with the goods.
