Why Kevin Randle has lost (some) respect and (lots of) cachet
Kevin Randle is one of those names in UFO-land that carries weight – not as much weight as it once had but still rather formidable in some UFO circles.
Mr. Randle has been trying, mightily, to correct his image as a sloppy UFO researcher by recently regurgitating correctives of the Roswell scenario, which he and Donald Schmitt, among others, botched by accepting witness testimony willy-nilly; that is, he (and his cohorts) took down Roswell stories as if they were gospel when, in fact, they were as dubious as the Christian Gospels, even more so.
Yet, Mr. Randle, via his blog [A Different Perspective], continues to allow comments, such as those I’ve placed in the posting just prior to this one.
The comments come from UFO loonies or UFO trolls/scum as Steve Sawyer without any disciplined editing, just carte blanche posting of crazy comments, whether from those cited or ET obsessed quidnuncs like David Rudiak,
Mr. Randle thinks, I believe, that if someone says something or writes something, those somethings have got be valid or credible.
This is what got him in trouble with the sensible UFO community about Roswell in his books.
Now he continues that mistake but allowing a “democratic” free-for-all at his blog where anyone can post something, anything, and it stands there as a viable example of truth, but is often hardly that, mostly just goofy-ass observations by UFO laggards hoping to become someone noted in Ufology – a sad desire, granted, but still wished for by some at the fringe of UFO lore and history.
Mr. Randle has got to tighten his grasp of UFO-related commentary, keeping fools out of his blog, and not interacting with their crazy ruminations.
If he doesn’t do that, he’ll descend further into the bowels of ufology where most former UFO UpDaters now reside, because they, too, got flippant and UFO insane.
