Skeptics = will just want to Debunk anything and everything. This includes any decent footage or story of a UFO or anything claiming to be ET in nature. They are here to "balance out" any hard core theory. But the main job of the debunker is well... to debunk! They often believe blindly in terrestrial science, and believe that no other "peoples" out there might be alive and come up with a far more complex science that would dwarf their puny little minds. They often use truths with half truths, if no half truth is available, they will make sh*t up. They think that science is power, power to crush others theories or beliefs.

Thanks for the guide to people here, although we kinda got that from this thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...
maybe you should have created a category for 'debunkers' and one for 'skeptics' because there is a difference.

Skeptics debunk, and debunkers are skeptics.

Then there are truth seekers. I am a skeptic who KNOWS non-conventional craft are present in the skies around Earth.
In a thread where we are unsure what the data means, I am an interested inquirer. Where the evidence is bunk, I am a debunker. Where a thread is being unfairly debunked, debunkers will unfairly label me a believer.
A true skeptic suspends judgment until there is sufficient evidence to draw a conclusion. They do not set out just to dismiss, but look for evidence both for and against an idea. They should be skeptical of their own position.
Compulsive debunkers are not true skeptics. They are prejudiced.
