From what l've gathered, the fake researchers who have been posting here have initially all had a genuine interest in this subject, but their desire to obtain attention and play a fantasy character quickly became too great. These people can't help themselves, and little do they know that this is actually a real phenomenon, and that anyone with the right skill set will eventually be able to tell that they're not being truthful about their experiences.

 

In my experience, one is far more likely to get a legitimate report just by randomly picking one from the BFRO or any other database than from active members of online forums.

There is way more silliness than Moneymaker out there.....

 

The way I see it is thus.

 

1)For most this subject is simple a campfire ghost story. They do not want to prove or disprove anything....pass the marshmallows please.

 

2)Some get frustrated by the lack of results and start seeking answers that defy modern physics.

 

3)Some seek to profit from the subject in one form or another.

 

4)Some blatantly make up stories about hidden "knowledge" in order to garner attention unto themselves.

 

5)Some stay grounded, looking for the facts, find none and move on to greener pastures.

 

6)Some are the knowers that have " seen" the creature and stay in the fight.

 

7)Some just want to argue the PGF in a circular fashion until death do us part.

 

8 ) Some are skeptics that are doing research on the human brain.

 

9)Some are professors that seem to like to talk about the reasons for the lack of evidence over the last century.

 

10)Some are self proclaimed scientists that dismiss your opinion in favor of their own while touting your lack of understanding of the evidence....of which there is very little.

 

Who did I miss?

 

 

You did great . Fourth plus was me. We all fit in there somewhere and I noticed very recognizable characteristics of many who post here. Awesome job. Self included. Perhaps you should start a poll and have us choose which one we are.

Lol, great thread to break up the monotony of the boards. Light hearted yet effective at getting one to take an introspective view.

Some consider virtually any photographic or video submission to be true by default.

Some are ex-military internet "tough guys" who like to fantasize in great detail about baggin' themselves a squatch.

 

Longtabber PE types used to be a dime a dozen around here.  It was rather fun watching the ducks get knocked down by the .22 like at the old carnival side-shows.

There was a more recent example.

You're seeing just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. There have been at least a couple dozen attention-seeking fake researchers here since 2015, and there's at least 7 or so still around.

 

It's a very similar situation with the denialists, except they don't have awareness of their own motives

The way I see it is thus.

 

1)For most this subject is simple a campfire ghost story. They do not want to prove or disprove anything....pass the marshmallows please. - Cool

 

2)Some get frustrated by the lack of results and start seeking answers that defy modern physics. - Not a great character trait.

 

3)Some seek to profit from the subject in one form or another. - Chancers, they come and go and always will.

 

4)Some blatantly make up stories about hidden "knowledge" in order to garner attention unto themselves. - Mentally unstable.

 

5)Some stay grounded, looking for the facts, find none and move on to greener pastures. - Not a great character trait.

 

6)Some are the knowers that have " seen" the creature and stay in the fight. - Cool, these ones can grow tired however but will always remain.

 

7)Some just want to argue the PGF in a circular fashion until death do us part. - Appear to be huge ego people and aren't capable of accepting that they're wrong, probably ever.

 

8 ) Some are skeptics that are doing research on the human brain. - I have real issue with these. These people offer zero to the subject, but sadly are there in force.

 

9)Some are professors that seem to like to talk about the reasons for the lack of evidence over the last century. - Possibly big ego people that have a pretty closed mind, despite their positions and platforms.

 

10)Some are self proclaimed scientists that dismiss your opinion in favor of their own while touting your lack of understanding of the evidence....of which there is very little. - Huge ego's and self obsession.

 

Who did I miss?

 

 

 

So i guess the conclusion is that there aren't too many good people within this subject.. Hahahaha

 

For what it's worth, i'd never say that MM is hurting this subject. The guy had the nous and foresight to build an amazing database that will directly/indirectly take this subject further forward in the next few years, than it has moved forward in the last 50
