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 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.

Respected veteran Canadian UFO researcher Grant Cameron, whose specialty is "Presidential UFO Politics" is reporting today that "CIA Official" Chase Brandon, on Coast to Coast AM, has confirmed the extraterrestrial origin of the 1947 Roswell NM crash - with bodies - with an interesting, accompanying video of the "audio" on YouTube.

I'm concerned that this could be another government trial balloon...just like 1947...when the report of a downed "disc of presumed extraterrestrial origin having been captured by Roswell Army Airfield personnel" was gigantic news for all radio and newspapers West of the Mississippi, and soon all over the world (remember..very few TVs , and no FAX/ Internet then) for about 5 hours, and then the spin doctoring came out even "bigger time', such that the media east of the Mississippi hadn't even heard about it until the fix was already "in", and all who'd known - or seen - the truth were effectively shut down, or in case of the high level military originally involved in the announcement, quietly promoted later for their acquiescence in 'admitting a mistake" had taken place. Yes, the Senior Army officers of the world's only atomic Strike Force at the time had misidentified a common weather balloon, even if those things were launched twice daily from that very same Roswell Army Airfield.

The Truth aside, I'm wondering why 'now" for this current admission..and why a major public figure isn't the one to blow it all open. These are compelling questions and I'm holding off until I learn the answers. This is big , however, if it's a timed Acclimation step that won't be subsequently denied on an official level. After some 18 years of this, however, I just don't know a "Chase Brandon" or have ever heard of him..another aspect to research/investigate.

Refer to Facebook/Grant Cameron or YouTube, same name, for further information. I'll be following up on this of course..and "holding my breath" (tee hee) while I await this report on the major TV networks.

Loonies bet. Hell, we have to! They shipped us up and bet us we couldn't stay alive. We fooled 'em. We'll fool 'em again!" Robert Heinlein, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.
