It has been my experience that when 'something' reaches that level, there is a higher investigation done by the higher ups on this site. Yet, neither of these threads have reached that level of investigation.

We need a new forum category on ATS. Whenever someone makes claims like this, it needs to go to the HOAX forum until the OP has provided definative proof. Once this has been met, the thread can be moved to the applicable category.

I dont like the flag system, you can flag it to push it higher to the top but you cant flag it to push is to the bottom. If we had a way to flag these post as nonsense(and those who thought they were true could flag otherwise) then I think we could put a stop to this.

We currently have two threads dealing with alien encounters on the board.
So the reason for this thread is twofold.
First, I'm wondering if this is an ATS Game?
The second is because one of the OP has placed many people on ignore and prevented any open discussion by refusing to answer questions that would lead to some conclusion.
Now, that may be his right but it certainly doesn't help deny ignorance, nor does it lend itself to member participation when a member is undecided, or disagrees.
It does make for a great deal of congratulations and agreement which itself leaves no discussion on the possibility of the event being true.
And that is a bit appalling. It would seem if a party chose, he could use ATS, by way of these same tactics, to prove anything. He could even claim to others, and on other forums, he opened this for discussion on ATS and nobody could disprove it.
In my thinking, that is not what ATS is about. The two threads are here:
Violent Encounter with an Alien Being
Alien ran out of my bedroom window
Both these threads are based on the premise that an alien being was encountered in a home.
One has significant detail; the other has almost no detail.
In both these threads the alien is injured in some manner.
Both threads have drawings of the alien and picture evidence of a related object.
Both these threads appear to have one main player, and each player has a coach.
So are we playing an ATS game?
And if we are not, is anybody looking at the possibility I've raised?
What is everybody thinking about these competing hoaxes?
