I think this is where a lot of arguments come in to play. For something to be a fact you must have hard evidence. Having a statement or a video that goes alone with what you "any member" are saying does not validate something to be a fact. Unless it irrefutable! Which I've never seen. Facts where UFOs are concerned are hard to come by. I've also found that claims of inside knowledge often but not always turns out to be untrue. A lot are hoaxes and false statements are used in trying to sway arguments. Like Joe Friday from Dragnet I want: "just the facts maam!"

UNLESS the thread is a discussion. In a discussion theories and evidence can come from anywhere. Discussions are fun! You can debate freely! Its only when someone claims something to be a fact that you have to put up or shut up. I'm an engineer and facts are important to me. I don't take them lightly. Neither should any of you.

I can understand sources not wanting to be revealed. But in a court of law it would be viewed as hearsay and not be admissible. That's sort of what I think when I read a post that has a unknown source to back up a claim.

The one exception I have that I never question or call someone out on is their own personal experience. If you don't walk in their shoes you have no knowledge of what that person has experienced. I may ask questions but I would never dispute what they are saying. Just my two cents!!! Dan

I am very happy to see this. You know back when the Casebook was still young, a number of people who followed the site wrote me and asked for a Forum. When I put this one in, I never dreamed we would have as many people registered as we do now. I thought maybe we would get a couple of hundred eventually, and it would be easy to monitor. I had only myself, and one other person who helped out, so now we are years later with over 5,500 members, and 15 or so people who work here.

My point is when you have as many folks as we do here, from varying backgrounds, different countries, etc, we will never have 100% agreement on anything. But, of course, the purpose of this thread is board etiquette, and as far as that goes, we certainly need more of it.

To me, it is a simple thing. If someone makes a post that you know nothing about, just don't fool with that thread. If you are on a thread that you feel like you have some information of value, share it. Be prepared to have someone disagree with, and when they do, don't be offended. Either respond politely, or don't respond at all.

If you are responding to a post that you disagree with, or feel like the person is wrong, it is perfectly fine to say so but it can be done in a civil way. The person who thinks differently is not a moron just because they see things another way.

It makes me no difference what a person's personal wealth amounts to, who they know, where they have been, who they know that is important, they are just a human like me and you. Shoving your credentials down someone's throat is totally immature, and should be avoided.

Does anyone here know, after all of these years, my educational background or degrees? No, they don't. Why? Because this board is a place to discuss the UFO and related mysteries, and that is all it is. The most important thing I can do is collect and present evidence I feel is relevant to that issue, and present it in a mature manner.

Thanks, folks

The one forum that I use to be a member of but left because it was so unruly has rules. Good ones to. I was shocked.

3. Behaviour
Any of the following constitutes unacceptable behaviour:

3a. Racism or hatred: Do not post racist or hate-driven material or views which express hatred towards or discriminate against any specific race, religion, country, gender, individual or group.

3b. Harassment: Do not harrass, threaten, bully or victimise other members, this includes but is not limited to sending harassing private messages or harassing members via posts, threads or profile comments.

3c. Profanity: Do not use profanity or crude, vulgar language. Members who consistently use offensive language or attempt to bypass the offensive language filters will be subject to moderator action.

3d. Trolling: Do not troll the forums. We define a 'troll' as someone who's purpose on the forum is to create as much disruption as possible, offend as many people as possible or otherwise disrupt the forum service intentionally for personal amusement.

3e. Flamebaiting: Do not intentionally instigate "flame wars" or bait others in to making personal attacks.

3f. Abusive behaviour: Do not be rude, insulting, offensive, snide, obnoxious or abusive towards other members.

3g. Suggestive behaviour: Do not post sexually suggestive comments, innuendo or engage in inapropriate sexually oriented personal exchanges; purely personal correspondences are best kept private.

3h. Multiple usernames: Do not register more than one account without prior permission from the administrator. If you have forgotten your password please use the password recovery system to retrieve it. If you have forgotten your login username or are otherwise unable to access your account please contact us via e-mail for assistance. If you want to change your account's display name you can do so from the "My Controls" page.

3i. Forum groups/gangs: The formation or promotion of organised groups, clans or gangs is disallowed, as are organised attempts to harrass other members, disrupt discussions or enforce a certain viewpoint in any way that prevents fair and unbiased discussion.

3j. Thread derailment: Do not derail or 'hijack' threads with posts that are either off-topic or designed to draw attention away from what is being discussed. If you'd like to discuss something different either start a new thread or find another existing thread which better suits the area you wish to discuss.

3k. Forum warfare: Do not initiate or participate in "wars" on the forum with other members. Collective or individual attempts to attack, accuse, discredit or force a certain viewpoint on other members are disallowed. A "war" can constitute a prolonged series of disruptive confrontations between specific members or groups of members with similar beliefs or views, usually with either side accusing the other of being the aggressor and attacking, criticising and baiting each other on a regular basis. Action will be taken against members who instigate or participate in this type of activity.

A Healthy Mind

A healthy mind always thinks it is right, but does not think it is always right.
This enables it to act with confidence, yet be willing to listen to other points of view and change if it finds it was previously wrong so it will be right again.

Unhealthy minds either think they are always right, or fear they are always wrong.
In the first case the mind becomes defensive of its position, unwilling to consider other positions, or allow others to hold other views. It leads itself into a false feeling of superiority and denigrates others as lesser intellects unable to grasp the truth.
In the second case the mind becomes timid and is always fearful of someone pointing out it's errors. It withdraws from interaction into the safety of solitude. When it does interact it becomes submissive, always looking for a stronger will to follow so that it has a shield against the arrows of reality.

Yep, gotta agree with shaman... as usual.

I heard a skeptic (the t.v. kind) say something like
" an open mind leaks out..." and what ? shares knowledge? creator forbid. Remember: if it's NOT open, nothing gets in.

Some find it easier to snuff the spark within;
than face the darkness which surrounds them
