I AGREE! I mentioned a similar idea as a tangent to a response of someone who claimed to be in contact with extraterrestrial beings. The thread was
"My EXperiences With an Alien Entity--and a Question..." by Jimbo68. He claimed to have "DIRECT OBSERVABLE EVIDENCE that I have actually
WITNESSED." This was my response to the thread:
"I'm relatively new at this site, but I have an opinion on how to deal with threads like this. I have read WAY more than a few threads of an
individual purportedly being contacted by, or in contact with, alien(s), God(s), mythical creatures, or otherwise privy to secret information. Many of
these individuals CLAIM to have evidence, but when urged to present the evidence, they INSTEAD present excuses. I think that perhaps when someone
posts a topic dealing with some kind of mysterious contact AND claims to be in possession of HARD EVIDENCE (not PROOF mind you) then that person
should have a limited amount of replies to present said evidence before the a MOD kills the thread. That's my opinion. Sorry if you think that's
presumptuous for someone new around here to suggest that. But it seems the people who tend to make these kinds of posts have very few themselves. Plus
I don't think lies and, quite possibly, delusions should be encouraged."
I think there are hoaxers, and (let's be honest) less than wholly sane people at this site among the sane, intelligent and enlightened that are here
as well. I am not advocating the outright suppression of ideas by any means. What I am advocating is the restriction of posts and threads by people
who claim to have PROOF that never present any. I think if you claim to have TANGIBLE PROOF in the form of audio, video, picture, etc. than either
you present it within a set amount of responses or your thread is killed or you are BANNED. That's my opinion.
