As long as we are categorizing personality profiles for those that post in the UFOs and Aliens forum and threads, I think a key component of the ATS
experience was left out:
These well-intentioned posters are known to unintentionally derail a thread, not out of malice like a troll, but out of a genuine inability to stay
focused. They typically truly believe that they are "thinking outside the box", but in fact are contributing disjoint fragments and crumbly tidbits of
unrelated trivia. In the professional world, they label themselves as "visionaries", as in the sentence "I don't worry about details, I am a
Their posts often begin with a stream-of-consciousness approach as if they are picking up mid-sentence. Punctuation is superfluous as great ideas do
not require organization. A post may start with "...and that remind of the MUFON where Rossi opens up to find invasion is real and everyone knows the
Obama-alien/hybrid." Sentences usually contain obscure references and an unrelated
, which also has a 75 percent chance of being a broken link.
Often times, the Scrambled Eggs in the thread begin having a completely separate conversation with each other as the real thread continues in the
space around them. They are hip to each other's jive. They are utterly undaunted by any attempt to re-focus them on the matter at hand. They are the
fisher-kings of the interwebs.
But in reality, sometimes they are the comic-color of the forum experience, because most people would never imagine connecting the words and wayward
thoughts that they have and expect someone else to have any clue what they are talking about. They are enigmas, neither on foot nor horseback.
And, just perhaps, they are the real aliens. It would explain so much.
