Greetings! Civility, the TTSA, and UFO history. Throughout the entire modern history of the UFO phenomenon, there have been unsubstantiated claims and statements made by individuals of note, numerous “UFO celebrities”, and various “UFO investigative” groups. Imminent disclosure (whatever that term means to the UFO community), the examination of non-terrestrial materials, groundbreaking secret documentation, and the yearly claims of “This is the year of the UFO!” are some of the claims which have been, and continue to be made, on a consistent basis. Unfortunately, virtually none of these claims has come to fruition, yet members of the UFO community continue to believe such claims, and are willing to resort to lewd and outrageous behavior when interacting with other people who don’t feel the same way about those same claims. Now to be perfectly clear, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and all such opinions should be respected, but that does not give people permission to act in lewd, childish, and self-righteous ways, particularly when in the process of communicating with others. Such horrid behavior speaks volumes about such individuals. The recent activity of the TTSA has brought this unfortunate situation back to the forefront, and this has resulted in a further fracturing of the UFO community into two distinct camps; Pro-TTSA and anti-TTSA. I long for the days gone by of civil and cordial interactions within the UFO community. Perhaps we as a community can get back there once again. Thank you for the privilege of your time.
