Tony -

Any investigator who isn't initially skeptical isn't very mature.
70%-90% of all initial reports end up identified by reliable
investigators.

Honestly, I don't want to see "believers" doing investigations.

If someone believes, why investigate, since they know? If one
doesn't know, that's when one wants to investigate.
