We may think a Alligator or a Bear bone may look convincingly enough to be that of a Primate. I applaud anyone who is picking up suspicious physical evidence and getting it tested. Who knows?

 

This is not how to go about slandering his character. Why? Because hoaxers do not submit bones for study or grainy FLIR images! 

Really good point, in my opinion.

Hello All! First post for many years. Took time out to study as many sighting reports as I could get my hands on. So many excellent resources online if you look in the right places. 

 

As for Moneymaker... Well as one who has had several 'exchanges' with him on Twitter over the years, I can only concur that he is a pretty difficult character to like or at times agree with.

 

He's brash, opinionated and often, in my view at least, intentionally controversial. He is however, knowledgeable and can be very helpful on occasion. This subject has it's fair share of interesting characters and MM certainly falls into this category. Personally I prefer my BF exponents to be a bit more thoughtful and measured but hey, it's a subject that we all feel passionately about so I understand some going off the deep end at times.

 

There is no doubt MM's personality won't be too everyone's taste but we cannot doubt the impact he has had on the subject over the last 7-8 years or so.

Yes we can. He's in it for the money and makes stuff up to get that money so...yeah, we can.

....Also, it seems that many people bash the BFRO for whatever reason, but we all use their database for many purposes, yet Matt gets no credit for keeping that going. The BFRO also produces researchers. Many researchers here got interested because of the BFRO, including your truly. 

 

It's not right.

 

 

I will give BFRO major props for their list of sightings, if that's what you mean by their database - is there something else on their website I'm missing?  Their reports are by far the best in letting the witness state, in their own words, what they saw/heard/etc., and then following up for details.  I guess I'm just confused by identifying that as a "database" as its not publicly searchable.

Exactly how would another bigfoot show be different than Finding Bigfoot? 

.... 

 

Like Mountain Monsters on Destination America, unfortunately.  And to the extent that Finding Bigfoot let some TV executive somewhere say, "We can do that, only dumber!," shame on them.  I half expect to see "Big Brother - the Bigfoot Season" coming soon.

I had to reprimand some soldiers one day for using an imager for erotic viewing of female visitors during a family day fair.  

 

Anything I say can be used as evidence against me in a court of law. I think I'll just exercise my right to remain silent.
