Paris fake drone
« on: August 14, 2008, 12:11:50 pm »
Beware of that one :
http://mufoncms.com/cgi-bin/manage_sighting_reports.pl?mode=view_long_desc&id=12062&rnd=806301218708470
in last 20 sightings...

I know the guy, he told me that he just wanted to test Mufon :
how easy to fool their data base.
I know it's rather silly, but i could not prevent it to happen...

is a fake. I had contact with the guy.
He explained that he was testing how easy it was
to get a Mufon record.

Actually it is quite easy to report a fake sighting, I don't think we would have come far if incoming reports had to be "sifted" before it is made public.

There has to be a sort of open way to allow sightings, real or not, to reach the few that are unexplainable.

In this case, it might be obvious, but if we are "selective" in the incoming sightings, we surpass the wide interest of submitting sightings to MUFON, and therefor might loose the few "REAL" sightings.

That would be true biased selection, and not in the interest of the public.

Ps: To estimate if a sighting has relavance, we have an excellent forum like this to determine if it is real, and that seems to work perfectly!  ;)
