Chewed Out! -- Part Two

Ok, it happened again. I got chewed out a second time for being "negative" about my UFO investigating career. This was after responding to the first scolding with an explanation of where my negativity was coming from...

Here's what I wrote to the scolder the first time:
"Criticism taken, but if you read more than just the one post you'd see that there's much more to my blog. From time to time I need to vent my frustrations with UFO people, and when I do I usually take on an exaggerated tone... But the majority of the UFO people I run across are pretty cool and I treat them with respect. I hope you keep reading"
Short, sweet and sincere, right? But not good enough for the scolder, who wrote this the next day:
"I did read more than one post, but that doesn't change the fact that you speak rudely about your contact with witnesses. People who have seen things already have to contend with the fact that a lot of people think they are crazy or were hallucinating or saw a bird or what ever. For someone like me, who had an experience so bizarre that I have never found any evidence of another sighting like it, & who has been searching for answers, it is disheartening to discover that the WI mufon investigator speaks disparagingly about witnesses.
"Whether you meant it light heartedly or not, it gives someone like me pause in wanting to share with you. I will continue my search for answers as I want to believe that my husband & I cannot be the only people who have experienced what we have. Witnesses need to know that there is a safe place to go to seek answers as we are sick of the name calling & disbelief that we receive."
Is this when the witness experienced? Sadly, this writer may never know.
So, okay, bad on me. I don't want my writing to discourage anyone from reporting UFO a sighting. Especially a sighting that is apparently so bizarre that the witness has never found evidence of another sighting anything like it. I can only assume from this letter that the witness and her husband have shared their story before and were met with disbelief and mockery, and it's unfortunate that they came across my blog when they did. Then again, as I think I have made clear many, many times, I would never suggest that anyone come to this blog looking for "answers."

I would love to hear about the witness' experience, but I'm pretty sure that won't happen now. I do hope, however, that they will report their experience to someone, somewhere, sometime.

As for me, I don't have a single case lined up right now, which is just how the UFOs like it.
