what I find issue with is the way you make a sensational statement about something BEFORE it is proven to be true.
well let me address that issue....
I made 6 posts under Pegasus Document release...
One was about Project Looking Glass the REAL papers, one was about the Fusion Rocket from 1992 by University of Wisconsin and a third was about the
Nuclear reactor on the Moon, a document from NASA dealing with Project Outreach and three more....out of the thousands that I have...
What happened? A few people looked... found the work to be great... but then nothing... no one wants to look and read the official documents because
no one REALLY want to know what is going on except those already there
ATS staff decided they were only worthy of Skunkworks... so be it... I then stopped presenting any more... Yet Cliff Stone presents FOIA documents
that are publicly available for years and he gets top billing because most of them are on UFO stuff...
And the mere mention of the term FOIA in a post will generate a banner beneath my post promoting his work... and SO has already mentioned Cliff gets
ad revenues on his forum...
Now look at the other side Mike Singh also uses 'flashy' headlines and
look at the support the threads get... Look at the Robbie William "I
saw a UFO" thread...
It is very obvious to me what people are interested in looking at here... and what 'draws the crowd' so to speak... I have also learned which posts
are mostly ignored and which posts get applauded... its not rocket science
I see by the posts made what people like... I see by the responsible skeptics presenting counter arguments like showing the Arabian craters that they
too have an interest.
I spent a whole day gathering months of work on the Martian Fossil evidence and that thread, posted the same day as this is still on page one...
Why? Because no one can debunk that one that's why... so the skeptics can't harass me in there... and soon the thread will sink into anonyminity
And if there is no argument... there will be no posts either for or against... as the T&C don't generally allow a "Great Post Dude" single liner
So yes an 'interesting" headline draws the crowd... and without crowd pleasers there would be little point in providing the effort
