So because there was one (probably more) hoaxer we should ridicule every single post of an abduction?
If just one of these posts is true than we have much to learn.
Yes, I would have to agree, there is the possiblity that many of these abduction posts are probably individuals needing attention, playing pranks or
I have found that one learns more by listening rather than talking and as stated before out of all the now millions of people who claim to have been
abducted, some of them are probably very real valid and reality based experiences. Too many credible people are coming forward with the same
"Where there is smoke there is fire".
By ridiculing someone you are by bullying tactics, shutting them down.
If we ridicule here on ATS which is a Conspiracy / Alternative Site, those individuals that do have real experiences won't come forward and we will
never gain all the pieces to the puzzel.
If I personally was abducted, there's no way I would come forward and tell another living soul, not with individuals like you who verbally tear apart
these abduction posts.
Yes, I realize that there are many individuals out there that are liars but I want to decide this for myself vs you shutting them down before they
have spoken their piece.
Something's been going on all over our planet. We'll never get to the bottom of it if we don't start trusting and opening up to one another.
I would normally sit quietly and listen to these posts and reserve judgement, but feel the need to at least keep the lines of communication open vs
allowing you to shut someone down.
You never know, the one person you put down and then in turn never posts again because you "shut them down" might be the one individual that holds
the key to the puzzel.
Anyone that out and out knowingly lies about something like this is a individual that is in my opinion either childish or mentally sick.
