My name is Kevin Bailey, I reside in a relatively small city of 100,000 called Guelph. I am (if it matters) a Canadian.
I have been viewing these threads for longer than most of you have been members, even those who have a high notoriety in this community. I am only 26 years of age, and was quite young when I chanced upon these forums. Back then, I was only looking for answers/understanding towards a plethora of unrelated things.
I cannot express to you how much these forums changed my perception of reality. I was YOUNG, and these forums literally changed my thought patterns. Something for witch I am grateful for, it has put me in a position to quantify the vast majority of claims, stories, sightings, and theories that are presented here.
Something is to be said about then and now. Back then, it was more a more tight knit community, as should be expected because the number of members was significantly lower. As such, members spoke almost as if they knew each other and dare I say respected each other. When threads would pop up, there was a real effort within the boards to offer CLARITY on the thread. Objective opinions, articles and data was CONSTANTLY updated to the threads, it was a simple place to come to and find COMPREHENSIVE information in ONE thread. Example, back then when they talked about abductions, somebody wouldn't simply post a new thread about their experiences, it would show up in another thread where dozens have been sharing similar experiences. Now its just a fight to get attention. WE LITERALLY HAVE PROCLAIMED ABDUCTEES BASHING EACH OTHER ON THESE BOARDS TODAY. How did this happen?
We have conspiracy theorists (I use this term loosely) discounting other theories that have just as much **BASIS IN REALITY** as the other. Instead of trying to find the link. I'll have to end my little rant for now....it was just a taste I suppose.
I've signed up to offer what I believe is Clarity to a lot of issues and theories surrounding these boards. I am here to show you that a lot of you are looking for answers and they are RIGHT here on these boards, you simply have to work together to find it among this jungle of a mess that has become these forums. And MOST importantly is to READ THE SLOGAN for this website....Deny ignorance...Let me just say, that these boards have become ignorant. When you come here to deny the ignorance that is fed to you by the powers that be and then turn around and be IGNORANT to others who feel the same hopelessness for this earth as you do, what would you call yourselves. I clearly do not speak for all members.....just most.
I will make my mandatory 20 posts in other threads before I offer my thoughts in their appropriate board...
I look forward to the comings months
