In my view, we have several different ways of dealing with things in this forum, and it should be viewed as such:
UFOlogy studies are two sided - There are the news-threads, where recent sightings/footage/pictures are brought up and discussed. Often correlated
with old cases and such. These are the good ones in my opinion. And then we have the "junk" brought up by people who believe in anything they see on
the Internet. Blurry photos of christmas decorations, clearly CGIs and such. They usually get forgotten pretty quickly.
Cryptozology studies are one of the best forums here IMHO. Loads of different cases are brought up, and they are often dealt with (More than most
other sub-forum cases) in a scientific POW, and end up at a standstill or as a clear debunk. There aren't the extreme "hatred" we see in some
forums - Especially UFOlogy and Skunkworks.
Skunkworks... Yes... For me, thats the realm of reptillians and their believers who can see a shapeshifter in a compressed video of a houseplant. I
don't venture there anymore.
Science and space exploration forums are okay, unfortunately we don't see so much action in there. The good news-threads are a bit far apart, and the
audience in there are 50/50 - Some that know what they speak of, and some that like science mumbo jumbo and act after that.
Medical forums are like the science and space exploration forums, although with quite more people that should stay in skunkworks IMO.
I can't speak on the political sub forums, but it is my belief that they are usually pretty good, although with a bit too much ignorance at some
My point of all this, is that the sub-forums should be kept as seperate places, and that they each have their own seperate "goal".
Note: All this is purely my own opinion, after going through these sub-forums for several years.
