Thank you for clarifing that for me.....now, if I said people like you are smart......I am only implying you are smart, not a direct statement, yes?
Now, what is it that you want?

The people that bash Phage and others like him are simply insecure.
Revealing the truth is what this is all about and those that can't handle the truth, will forever belittle and degrade those that expose it.
Disagreement is the first step towards enlightenment.
Honestly, it's not Phage that gets me upset, it's the Phage wanna-bees that are rude and resort to name calling that upset me. Phage is a very intelligent and respectful individual, which personally I respect. I just don't give him the praise most think is warranted....after all his just a mere human, yes?
People bash Phage because they hate how everyone takes his word for it, and it must be true because the infamous Phage said it..
If you can't use logic and facts, what else is there, and why is it such a surprise to believers that UFOs are not taken seriously by the mainstream when most of what we call UFOlogy today is based on assumption and pseudo-science?
That is true, but why bash Phage? It's the people who blindly follow that are doing the damage. Phage can't be held responsible for the actions of others.
As a skeptic and contributer myself, I try to be polite, but sometimes it's not easy and I'll admit that sometimes I have been "wound-up" to the point where I have said things that were uncalled for.

Mods or whoever pulls the strings could be a bit more pro-active aswell.
Many a thread is allowed to continue after the hoax or fraud has been uncovered, which is fine but it should be then moved to the HOAX forum or skunkworks.
It does seem like flags and traffic matter more sometimes.
