"I try to back up my claims the best way possible..."
Good. This is exactly what it will take. So you don't always get corroborating evidence, that is the way this game seems to be playing out. Keep at it though. Someday those notes, pictures and such might be very important.
"I think other people on this message board has justified reasons to feel indifference with your organization after they have had negative contacts with your researchers..."
I am sure you can have a negative experience at the local 7-11 just as easily as with anything but you don't slander the whole franchise. That might be a bad example because those people are trained and employed by that franchise, but I hope you see my point.
I have not "taken" any reliable reports of aggressive behavior shown by a Bigfoot. That doesn't mean that they don't exist in the PNW, just that I have not come across any that panned out. There were no police reports made, doctors examinations, damage observed... just statements made by people. I investigated some of these reports and came away with nothing. The vegetation they claimed was uprooted during the incident was not evident, damaged vehicles were sold just before I arrived, the police advised them not to make a report without any evidence because they had more important things to do, etc.
"If someone asks us for help because a group of creatures are terrorizing their family. We do not send out an investigator to tell them the animals are passive and that they should feed them. Sorry but I feel that some of your investigators deserve to be made fun of."
Well you are obviously more knowledgable about your own situation there. In the areas I am familiar with, I might have made the same call as they did. But I will not lower myself to making fun of you or anybody else on such a descision. These investigators are obviously not experts on the subject, neither are you or me for that matter. So who is to say what is right and what isn't? The person who proves their existence might be, but so far that person doesn't exist either.
"Richard, I do not think anyone here truly hates your organization or is jealous of the things you find or the evidence you collect..."
Rummy, sorry but I do think that there are people there that do truly hate the BFRO. Well that is their right and I am not trying to change their opinions, just their methods. People who read this stuff will make up their own minds. That is who we all should be conscious of.
