Applause to you... look at yourselves patting each other on the backs... very good... lol
Many people on this site have been rude and confrontational from the beginning of the original thread on this topic.

Don't flatter yourself... Why would he waste his time talking to the likes of people that have already made up their mind, and aren't interested in
intelligent debate, but rather rude and direct attacks. It's not displaying fear not to want to get drawn into a mud-slinging thread. He most likely
felt that nothing productive would come from his investment of time here, and I would tend to agree.
If people had acted with the decorum of Megamind (who was being a reasoned skeptic, asking intelligent questions, without being a douche), he most
likely would have come back and contributed to the thread.
In Paris's defense, his report and himself personally never said that it was true, he only reported on the information that was available, without
making any real conclusions... which given what seems to have been available is as far as anyone could possibly go. Quite commendable and not
deserving of the harsh response that seems to have been directed at him, merely for investigating, reporting and providing footage for people's

I submitted a "UFO Report" on his blog and called him every name under the sun. I pointed out this thread, I showed that Google had it highlighted.
I emailed Paris. I hit his Facebook, Twitter, I have tried everything to get him to respond --> but my best guess is that he takes one look at the
"support" he's gotten here, from whence it came and one more at the veracity of the thread and elects not to self-suicide.
Regardless of how an individual may feel about a topic, with this type of hounding and obviously confrontational approach, would you respond?... you
don't want reasoned discussion, you want to attack and prove that you are the loudest... and thus right... lol... how wrong you are.
If someone treated me and my research this way, I would ignore them and any site they were associated with too.
I have been following this topic since page 1 of the original thread... and guess what?... it was interesting whether true or not. It was better than
90% of the tripe that is trawled out in some of these forums. It had a video, with an interesting (if unproven and fantastical) story to go with it.
Multiple reported witnesses (only one of which who was willing to be interviewed and go on record, the others probably didn't want the attention of
ATS armchair investigators calling them up and hounding them... I likely would think twice about making an official statement too to avoid being
harassed). Plus an investigator who actually looked into the case further was chiming into the debate, it HAD all the makings of a good thread.
That's more than many threads with much less plausible stories and no evidence have, that get much less criticism. Rather than be patient, people
spent a weekend getting worked up about it, by the end of which the thread had made its conclusion of Hoax (which was solely based on opinion).
Fine... that's what happens on this site... and is part of the reason many won't take a site like this seriously.
In reality not everyone spends their weekends on ATS... by the Monday when he may have responded, he most likely read the responses, laughed at the
infantile behavior, and figured "Why bother?". He than made a post on his twitter about conspiracy sites, which I actually felt was quite justified
given his treatment from this site.
In terms of the MiB (if they were real... likely not) wiping the footage, or accosting the witness elsewhere, or wearing better disguises, or some
other such, why should they bother and leave possible traces of tampering when people will argue it into the ground anyway. If they were real, this
footage in no way has harmed their cause... lol.
In terms of hiring the witness as an investigator, I can imagine at least two plausible reasons why...
1. ATS has generated many hits and direct phone calls/emails as a result of his accounts, and given him some notoriety.. why wouldn't they capitalise
2. To annoy the naysayers from ATS for a laugh just to see the continued infantile responses.
You people have taken an interesting story (with attached video) and beaten it to death rather than state an opinion and move on. You made it
