I am going to weigh in on this controversy although I fully expect to be torn to shreds by some of the posters here.
Perhaps friends of ANW do post here to get traffic to their site, perhaps they don’t. But as Azziz pointed out the concern here regarding ANW seems
to be a little more than concern for ‘The World of ufology’
It seems to be downright suspicious. Firstly, the anti-ANW crowd have told some downright lies here that can be seen to be such just by reading this
thread. It appears that the ‘example’ of plagiarism is in fact the only case of it….a bit of deception to further a cause.
Secondly and what should be far more worrying to all members here is the outright assurances given by the Anti-ANW crowd that ‘don’t you worry
children none of any of the stories posted by ANW has a shred, not a shred, of truth to them…none, I assure you. Forget them completely’.
Even after credible sources for the stories are clearly posted for all to see…entire incidents are just dismissed in a way no-one would ever dismiss
say, Roswell (which had its genesis in news reports too). What makes them so certain there isn’t a shred of truth to these stories? How do they
know and why should I (we) trust them on this?
No doubt as part of their smear campaign they will accuse me of being a lackey of ANW. Fine. But it seems to me a co-ordinated attack is underway and
it isn’t that innocent and we may be the losers in this. Perhaps some corners of the UFO world are threatened by ANW; perhaps ANW draws attention
away from the well-worn Betty and Barney Hill affairs that make them $$$$$$$$$$$$.
Point in case: Today ANW put up a story of a UFO seen and filmed in Kashgar. Is it a UFO, it might or might not be. It is pretty good footage
anyway-it is hard to see what on earth the anti-ANW could have against such a story (please educate me).....unless.
This worries me, is anyone here brave enough to support my position-I am not so sure?
