This has to be one of the best threads I have ever read.smiley

People coming together to discuss potential problems.

I think one thing to remember about new members is that they are probably nervous, do not want to be ridiculed, and are having a hard time coming out with their disclosure and/or processing their experiences.

Basically, we have all been trained to ridicule our beliefs that something has happened which probably comes from government tactics that started in the 50s concerning UFOs.

While I have been here for only a couple of days, there was alot of emotion I had with my first post with tons of uncertainly

- will people accept me
- will people think I bumped my head as a kid
- etc.

So, there is probably a lot of emotion with it at first.

I have to say this is one of the friendliest and understanding sites I have ever been in.

Which leads to something else to think about.

If you come from boards that tolerate "argumentums ad personam," it is hard to flip the switch and realize ppl are trying to help and not insult.

In the end, I feel people should learn to agree to disagree and enjoy insightfulness from others.

I have not seen it, but a "Report" category could be added beside the "Quote" in order for other members to assist the mods when ad hominem attacks occur - Just a thought and my $00.02. grin

Welcome again to the forum and thanks for the idea about the report button. I will ask our admin about it.

Have a wonderful day!

Thank you for welcoming me again and wishing me a good day. smiley

There are only two other possible suggestions that I have for this great site and believe it can come under board etiquette.

For one reason or another, some ppl will not get along and an “Ignore Member” feature could help.

Also, possibly a “Test” area where ppl can practice uploading their pictures, practice with their codes, practice inserting audio or video file, etc.

Thanks again and have a good day!

Hi Bones

You may have noticed the thread already, but if you haven't here is the link to how to put pictures etc into a post: http://ufocasebook.conforums.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=tips&num=1130555583&start=0

When you have done it once you will find that it is incredibly easy to do. If you are creating a post and make a mistake in putting in a picture, it can be easily deleted to try again.

BTW, welcome to Casebook. grin

Thank you Luvey for welcoming me to the board and your suggestion.smiley

I think you already know this, but please know I was not complaining in any way, shape, or form with the suggestions.

Everyone here is very friendly.smiley

The only thing I have not figured out how to use is the " [code][/code ]."

But, I will read up on it since I understand VBAs & C++.

Thanks again for welcoming me.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but have you ever noticed certain people take it upon themselves to argue every point you make, as though they have been assigned the job of doing so? wink Again and again the exact same names turn up to respond to your post, usually to disparage or attempt to negate it in some way with their presumed superior knowledge. One would think they would have better things to do. Me, I ignore their responses, since I long ago learned what they want is to engage you in a confrontation that can accomplish nothing productive. Having some education and background in human psychology, I still find the phenomenon interesting however. Telling would be more like it! wink

So you would prefer that people do not question posts, just accept it all at face value ?

And finally I think we're all here to share and grow together. If you think you know it all then you don't need us to hold you back. Go find an advanced site. I get tired of hearing: "I have an inside source!" Or "I've/We've done research and we know." The truth is you can surf the net and find all sorts of videos and statements that are not true to back up any argument. True facts on the topics found in this forum are hard to come by. If you claim something to be a fact then produce it. NO hear say!

Münchausen by internet: the sick world of the internet fakers

Why would someone feign a serious illness online? Jenny Kleeman on the strange world of Münchausen by internet.

April 19, 2011

[...]

(Mandy) Wilson is one of a growing number of people who pretend to suffer illness and trauma to get sympathy from online support groups. Think of the characters portrayed by Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter in Fight Club, only these support groups are virtual, and the people deceived are real. From cancer forums to anorexia websites, LiveJournal to Mumsnet, trusting communities are falling victim to a new kind of online fraud, one in which people are scammed out of their time and emotion instead of their money. The fakers have nothing to gain from their lies - except attention.

These aren't just people with a sick sense of humour. Jokers want a quicker pay-off than this kind of hoax could ever provide. It requires months of sophisticated research to develop and sustain a convincing story, as well as a team of fictitious personas to back up the web of deceit. Psychiatrists say the lengths to which people like Wilson are prepared to go mean their behaviour is pathological, a disorder rather than simply an act of spite. The irony is these people might actually be classed as ill - just not in the way they claim to be.

Some psychiatrists have started using the term Münchausen by internet (MBI) to describe this behaviour. Whereas Münchausen syndrome requires physically acting out symptoms to get attention from doctors, online scammers just have to be able to describe them convincingly. There's a limitless audience of sympathetic ears, and success can be quantified by the number of concerned emails and message-board posts generated by their lies.

My We could not agree more. You took the words right out of our mouths. Let's see them produce it and march straight ahead with Baron Münchausen.
Carry on.

Good seeing site here follow etiguette have respect for poster. Some are not in this thought as how to treat poster. Respect for what clearly is shown by poster in post and the charactor desplayed by setiment expressed can be observed by all. Important for continuing site. Clearly such care shown here.

Hi there
Joined up today and very excited to be part of the forum. Can anyone give me advice into the type of camera that is suited to capture shots of UFOs or is there a useful website for this? smiley
