Where did all the Open Minds Forum members go?

Fri Oct 19, 2012 12:29 pm by Admin

With Open Minds Forum restored now for almost half a year at it's new location with forumotion.com we can now turn to look at reaching out to OMF's original members who have not yet returned home. OMF's original membership was over 6,000 members strong, prior to the proboards suspension, according to the rolls of the time. We can probably safely assume that some of those accounts were unidentified socks. If we were to assume a reasonable guess of maybe as many as 30% possible sock accounts then that would leave potentially somewhere between 4800 to 4900 possible real members to locate. That is still a substantial number of people.

Who were all these people? Some were average individuals with common interests in ufology, exopolitics, globalism, corruption, earthchanges, science and technology, and a variety of other interests. Some just enjoyed being part of a vibrant and unusually interesting community. Others were representative of various insider groups participating in observation and outreach projects, while still others were bonafide intelligence community personnel. All with stake in the hunt for truth in one fashion or another. Some in support of truth, and communication. Others seeking real disclosure and forms of proof. And others highly skeptical of anything or limited subjects. The smallest division of membership being wholly anti-disclosure oriented.

So where did these members vanish to? They had many options. There are almost innumerable other forums out there on the topics of UFO's or Exopolitics, the Unexplained, and Conspiracy Theory. Did they disappear into the world-wide network of forum inhabitants? Did some go find new homes on chatrooms or individual blogs? Did they participate in ufo conventions or other public events and gatherings? How about those who represented groups in special access? Or IC and military observers? Those with academic affiliations? Where did they all go and what would be the best way to reach out and extend an invitation to return?

And what constitutes a situation deserving of their time and participation? Is the archive enough? How exactly do people within the paradigm most desire to define a community? Is it amenities, humanity or simply population size for exposure? Most of the special guests have been emailed and have expressed that population size for exposure is what most motivates them. But not all. Long-time member Dan Smith has other priorities and values motivating his participation. Should this open opportunities for unattached junior guests who have experience and dialog to contribute to the world? How best to make use of OMF's time, experience and resources?

Many skeptics would like to see the historical guardian of discourse opportunity to just up and disappear; go into permanent stasis. They think that not everyone has a right to speak about their experiences and if there is no proof involved then there can philosophically be no value to discourse. I personally would respectfully disagree with them. Discourse has always been the prelude to meaningful relationships and meaningful mutual relationships have always been the prelude to exchanges of proof. In a contentious social environment with regards to communication vs disclosure how do we best re-establish a haven for those preludes? Is it only the "if we build it they will come" answer? Well considering OMF has been largely fully functional over the last four or five months this line of reasoning is not necessarily true. So what would be the best way re-establish this? Your suggestions are sought. Please comment.

Dan is always so annoyed by hobbit.

Keep it up hobbit.

RB and Dan should get together and talk about all their problems and answer each other’s stupid muppet questions.

God, keep me away from that call.

Bahahahahahaha

smelly and hobbit,

Actually I would not mind having a conversation with RB.  

You and hobbit are the ones who protest human conversation.  

Will I have to bring in Cyrellys to shut you to up?  To stop your disruptive protesting?


3:22.......

Wait a minute, Doug.

I need you right, here.......

I hear the sound of drum beats loud, they drum to Fibonacci.









http://guruprasad.net/posts/fibonacci-number-series-originated-ancient-india/


If the beggar knew the true reality We co exist in, and the false slave reality We are currently imprisoned in, He /or She could be free to live in harmony with nature.

There is no money, there is debt, the federal reserve is a private corperation printing promisory notes.

Wake up Dan and smell the roses ( their petals are Fibonacci sequenced)

They are cannibals.

I dissent Dan, RBG style.

Shall you silence dissent?

Shall you not censure RB for trying to silence another with no style?

You are a confused muppet.

Who are the real muppets, here?

Neither smelly nor Aaron are answering my calls.

I’m getting more than a bit tired of your muppetry.  

Stand up or shut up.  That goes for you, too, hobbit. I don’t happen to have your British phone number.

I can tolerate individuals pestering me.  

I will not tolerate group harassment.

Can You not recognise that We care about You?


Your annoyance is in having to face upto reality, that Your presumed knowledge is flawed and assumption based.

Nature is the queen of all.

The illusions are uppity today.

It’s a muppet revolt!!!

Hide your children from their ufo sightings.

I agree, what a cesspool OMF has become.

A hive of villainy.

Where there is resistance there is a hidden treasure waiting to be unmasked.

Resistance is a sure sign of attachments.

Attachments are a sure sign of confusion.

There is only this moment now and now is movement

Move freely with the moving.

Dance with it.

Dougiepoo why don’t you go bug Grant.

We love you in spite of your muppetness, well, because of it.

It’s gonna be ok big guy.

The goat will protect you from the alien meanies.

Jung would have a field day with you on his couch, writing plays about UFOs.
