I have been following ATS for three years, give or take, been a member a bit less, but it still strikes me that people tend to report sightings in
amazingly wrong ways. If you ever want to be taken seriously, here's a link to a story in The Gray Area that is honestly written. It also gives a
nice natural explanation as an alternative.
Here's a link to another thread.
That only servers as an example, and if you read his natural explanation you must admit that you tend to believe him. Why? Because of the way it is
written and because of the personality you can see between the lines. It is honest as far as I am concerned.
All you people who report with OMG!!11 I was a UFO!!!!!!! and "Absolute proof of X!!!11?!1" are only hurting yourselves. The thing is, you cannot
possible convince the world unless you convince the skeptics, you just have to accept that. There is no other way.
So I just ask you people to just report things in ways that are even remotely believable. Luckily I have seen those kinds of examples as well so not
everything is ruined yet.
If you can't report in a comprehensible way, don't report it at all. You just hurt the subject.
