Please, PLEASE, stop acknowledging the "debunker's". For starters you are not going to change their mind. Next up while you are arguing with them
in your own thread and now defending your own position, I am trying to look at your information and any additional information posted from others
interested in your post. But guess what, it is often hard to find it all because it is lost in 12 pages of arguments with debunkers. Last but not
least it just discourages other people from posting what they think or adding pics, vids or other pieces of info due to fear of ridicule and the
knowledge that they will then have to defend THEIR information. It really shouldnt matter if people believe what you say or not, there are other
people here interested in it and they have a hard time telling you "hey thats cool, something like that happened to me" because you are caught up in
a pissing contest with a "debunker".
I have always giggled at people here (and elsewhere) that argue or even acknowledge "debunker's". For starters, if they were as smart as they think
they are then why waste your precious knowledge here arguing with people who believe things you think are ridiculous. Then theres the obvious, which
is if you dont believe in any of this "wild conspiracy stuff" what do you possibly get out of coming to places like this unless you have an agenda?
Do you really think your going to change anyones mind? Are you just here to argue? Perhaps you enjoy confrontation and drama. Seems there are better
ways to spend your time then hanging out arguing with people that you believe to be a little "off" for believing in this stuff. In conclusion, if
you are truly tired of the drama that is drug into every thread started here, stop acknowledging the people bringing in the drama.
My point, I suppose I have one, is that if you are truly interested in this kind of stuff ignore those who obviously are not and are just here to get
you fired up. I AM interested in this stuff (dont know if I believe it, but it interests me) and I can barely make it through one thread here without
losing interest. Mainly due to the fact that after the first three posts there are another 16 pages of people arguing about the first three posts.
If someone is just here to try and prove everything wrong you must take into account why they are here. Then ask yourself do you want to help them
accomplish their goal. If you do, argue away, defend your position to a stranger who came to a website, signed up, validated, searched out your post
and hit reply just to tell you how wrong you are. I beg of you ATS.
If the members here REALLY want to "research" these alternate topics, you need to stop arguing and defending and research. When do you ever see paid
researchers defending their research? Not often. Maybe one time, at the conclusion of their research but not during. Even then it is few and far
between. For the most part there is research, it is released, people criticize it and life goes on. The researchers dont argue with every moron on the
net that thinks they are a pro.
