I guess I like to hear all sides of the story. I consider myself
to be a reasonable, rational person. I give myself and other
rational people credit for having a brain in their heads.

Besides, I require the same level of proof from a debunker or
skeptic that I do from anyone else who wants to make a claim,
because I'm a _real_ skeptic.

I don't un-critically believe anybody! If I get all wound-up
about a sighting or a story, and a debunker can provide me with
acceptable proof that it's all a load of crap, sure it hurts, at
first. But I'd rather know the real story than live in my own
fantasy world. As for the hard-core debunkers who don't bother
to offer quality proof of their claims, I lump them into the
same category as the Space Brother channelers who do the same,
and ignore them. I'm a good ignorer. I've dabbled in groups that
only allow one perspective. They're a horror.
