It really doesn't help that YouTube monetises everything now. All the CGI hoaxers want is exposure for ad revenue.
I don't think that it is ethical to try and fool people and to make money inventing falsities and presenting them as truth.
Oh boy, I could make so much money if I was dishonest!
But I am poor, and honest.
I click on UFO videos mostly to entertain myself with hoaxing attempts, whilst looking for that gem that 'may' have merit in the belief
I still believe they are here.
Oh yeah...monetize the YouTube...except you still won't make any money until you get 100's to 1000's of views within a single 30 day period...and
then it still isn't very much (a few bucks at best). At that rate One might get a small deposit every 2 - 3 months ($100 or so).
Seriously...YouTube doesn't pay for S***. Not until you have your 100 vids and they are all viewed 100's of times per month.
But the YouTube traffic really isn't a serious issue to Ufology, the apathy I see IS, however. What I see is people who are actually "wanna-be" UFO
researchers, and just plain people who want an answer they can understand, and hold. Not very forthcoming though.
Part of the problem is that Ufology has NEVER had real standards, and of course today, everybody has their own private standard. A truly untenable
I don't see anybody even trying to resolve these issues, only talk and complain; never take on the task.
With the tools available today it shouldn't be (and indeed isn't) difficult to find and understand any data so-ever. For instance; I believe I have
"unique DNA properties"; I was able to get preliminary test results from various laboratories and ponder what it all meant. Then I was able to use
the Internet, and a good ole search engine (such as they are...) and learn about micro-biology, genetics, DNA, etc. until I gained an understanding of
the science. I was also able to use the mathematical and probabilistic data that accompanied the biological results to arrive at a set of
"probabilities" about what I was studying.
In short; wile I may not have answered my initial query, I did learn an awful lot about the general subject, and myself. This same technique can be
applied to anything...even Ufology.
Course, that also means that y'all actually are willing to do the work.
