In my opinion, the removal of comments which debunk (or have the possibility of debunking) does nothing to further UFOlogy, rather it keeps it as a
fringe topic with little credibility. Last year I came across Luna Cognita's videos, of which I found a few quite interesting. At the end of one
video he draws attention to what he claims is a pyramid NASA filmed on the moon. This was well and truly debunked when it was shown that the image was
(I believe) inside the Lunar module at the end of a roll of film (previous images match up 100% with the 'pyramid' image.
100% debunked, yet Mr Cognita has made no changes to the video and is therefore propagating a lie. It makes UFOlogy look very weak, full of liars and
charlatans (gee, surprise surprise). For those with of us with a serious interest in this topic it is frustrating. Sure, it may cause one to
re-evaluate what one believes and this can be challenging if what were thought of as certainties (or at least very strong cases) no longer retain
their mystery, but at least these events have been taken seriously enough and worked through in a rational manner to their logical cncusion.
I've found that often those people calling out the term 'shill', or 'narrow minded', with vigour, are guilty of the crimes they accuse othsrs of,
and a critical and honest appraisal of the topic at hand may in fact raise the study of unidentified flying objects out of the ghetto it has inhabited
for so long.
I had thought in the past that this Lou character had a few interesting videos (as well as birds and satellites) but alas, he is seeming more and more
close to 3rd Phase of the Moon. I like the mystery, but when someone removes comments as a way of being deceptive or misleading, I cannot take them
