Title: Complain regarding Paranormal forum section.
Post by: johndoe on March 03, 2011, 09:59:53 AM
Dear WL,

When i read about the Forum i was quite excited; a new place to confront is always welcome.

This excitement faded away in a bunch of seconds when among the section i noticed "Paranormal"

This is a slap to the scientific thinking and community, this is an insult to the smart people that are driving this society and our race forward.

I myself, don't feel comfortable in discussing were such nonsense is involved. Those themes are often used to scam people, brainwash minds just as religions does.

Therefore, since i consider speaking the "truth" a 360° job which should involve every aspect of WL, i will just avoid posting until such contradiction is solved.

Thanks you.

Regards.

I second this complaint.

Also initially happy to see a Wikileaks forum. Then deeply disappointed - and astonished - to see a Paranormal/UFO section ? And a Conspiracy section?

Come on Wikileaks. Paranormal and UFOs are used as a yellow card to shut down discussion with accusations of irrationality and nuttiness. They have NO place on Wikileaks - which is surely a place devoted to hard, verifiable fact. Or have I got Wikileaks wrong - in which case I - and many other serious people - will withdraw support.

What Conspiracies are we talking about? Bush's conspiracy about the WMD hidden all over Iraq? The Us Governments conspiracy about weaponised anthrax mailed by Arabs - that turned out to be US anthrax from a secure US military lab at Fort Detrick, mailed by Americans?  The Iran/Contra conspiracy - which turned out to be true once the conspiracy facts were unearthed? Corporations conspiring in boardrooms to increase profits? Kids conspiring to raid the cookie jar?

Please Wikileaks - say this Conspiracy/Cult/UFO is a bad joke you are about to withdraw.
It will do your cause no good whatsoever - and cost you credibility.

I also mistakenly lodged my complaint in the Paranormal section. Delete it there if you wish.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Paranormal is Info-Tainment/Tabloid Pap. Does Wikileaks want to be associated with truth - or 'truthiness'?

This gifts your enemies  a stick with which to beat you - a 'nonsense, nutty' label with which to smear you. I would think your leader Assange has had enough of that without bringing more mockery down upon himself and his work.

I don't think WL needs to offer a place 'to shoot the breeze about things not aired in other forums".
There are plenty other wacky forums to shoot the breeze on alien goo, religion and minority cults. Try Alex Jones, Rense, UK tabloids and any number of other info-tainment sites, which are not known for their attention to either reality or facts.

Why muddy your own brand with unprovable, speculative,  silly streams of consciousness?

Conspiracies Theories? Bush- Rumsfeld's conspiracy theory about non-existent WMD hidden all over Iraq? The conspiracy about weaponised anthrax supposedly mailed by Arabs in September 2001 - except it turned out to be American-strain anthrax taken from a secure American military lab in Maryland and posted by an American? Businessmen conspiring around a table to fix a bread/oil price? Kids conspiring to raid the cookie jar? What conspiracies are WLeaks on about?

Conspiracy FACTS are what you should concern yourself with, as any criminal lawyer will tell you. Anything else takes you on a slippery slope down to low credibility.

just to jump on the bandwagon here...

just what if something is found in government archives...
Area 51 and stuff like that..

i'm just saying, if anything like that is ever found, where are most UFO watchers going to go looking for it?
wikileaks of course.

and having this section brings extra traffic to the forum, thus creating more support for the wikileaks cause.

and thats a good thing.
agreed?

Then, why we don't post pictures of naked underage girls?

These will attract a lot a people to the forum. Including Italian prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi.

The quality of the information should attract people, not its popularity.

yes you do have a good point, i was only using that as an example.

its not like the paranormal board is up there with all the main leaks though.

i'm just saying, it should stay because of the "what if" factor. Wat if there happens to be UFOs or something in leaked cables, this would be a good place to bring that up.

you cant really turn around and say aliens don't exist, what proof do you have?

like yeah i agree cults and Conspiracy theories are a bit over the top, but they do link up.

And I (like a lot of other people) enjoy reading these stories. fact or fiction it shouldn't really matter.

this is a discussion forum after all, and wikileaks does promote free speach

Hello Everybody!

Most of us will properbly agree with you on this topic, but

there are two reasons why this section was added. 1. we've been asked to provide the freedom of speech regarding this matter (paranormal, ufo's and Religion) and 2. we would not be able to stop people from wanting to post on those topics, and this is why we decided to make a specific section for this available. This way it is kept in one section and it is up to everbody to either take interest and participate in any discussions there or not to.  We will never be able to please everbody but we are trying to be as tolerant as possible to allow people to discuss all things they feel important. We would like to ask for your understanding.

Hello,

I also find this UFO and Paranormal stuff quite dubious -  but ok: Better the believers  have their own corner as  if those UFO subjects would constantly apperar somewhere else where they wouldn't fit in thematically.

Considering the need to really establish WL as a reasonable tool beyond any doubt and to
protect this serious image against all kind of critism, which usually picks the "weak points",
I honestly would advise as well to skip the "Paranormal Section".
There are enough serious topics to discuss....

freedom of each person is limited with freedom of other person
it is basic rule in human society
and it is principle in WL world to
I am not fun of paranormal
but I can not be so free to ask for removing of paranormal because I will threaten the freedom of those who likes paranormal.
We have to be tolerant to people who enjoy in conversation about paranormal and comment topics of personal interest.
Title: Re: Complain regarding Paranormal forum section.
Post by: chamsi on March 04, 2011, 13:31:27 PM
But Wikileaks is dealing with "real" informations, being hold back for certain purposes, then
being leaked because of public interest.
As soon as there would be "real" information about paranormal topics...OK.
I would regret, if the fact based WL approach would be diminished.
Title: Re: Complain regarding Paranormal forum section.
Post by: Takaros on March 04, 2011, 14:02:41 PM
WL start with paranormal "stuff". It is controversial for me, but as I can see there is interest for paranormal comments.
My impression is that those members take paranormal as public interest. ;)
While they are tolerant and "mind your own bussines" I do not see reason to move those topics.

Usually I would agree with you completely...
but I remember very well an interview with Assange, one of the questions
concerning Ufo's  among other, really important topics.
And guess, what the headline of ZEIT referred to only ?...the Ufo's ;)
I'm sure, this forum is under observation also, and if the press reports about
it, the "paranormal stuff" will be used as a negative argument for the public.
At this time, I personally would avoid giving reason to discriminate WL
in any way, as people just are waiting for it.....

Before we made the forum we asked visitors of the Wl Facebook forum to put forward suggestions regarding the topics they woud like to see on a new forum.
The "Paranormal" section was suggested by many people and was therefore added.

If this is something you don't want to see then you havce the right to NOT visit this pat of the forum and use the rest. This board was created for this who WANT have room to express this particular subject and like all other boards, it is being moderated 24/7.

A statement made by a fellow member  "Then, why we don't post pictures of naked underage girls?" seems quite absurd and requires no further comment.

True, the WL is engaged in scientific journalism, but primarily to enable formation of own opinion based on facts provided and not to impose a particular attitude or world view.

The fact that the WL is a platform for publishing classified documents opens the room for many speculations and attracts also those who have a different opinion than outlined in this thread and I think it’s okay to give them the place for discussion too, especially since we know from Assange that there’re indeed cables with references to UFOs. Those who don’t believe in the paranormal, they can simply skip this thread.

Two things:

1.  What is it with people joining other peoples forums and then setting about complaining about what they don't like and attempting to remake things?

2.  Paranormal does not apply specifically to UFOs(for those who need that info)

Conheço muito bem os assuntos sobre paranormalidade.  A Física Quântica responde a algumas questões destes assuntos.

Podemos dizer que energias, as quais não conhecemos, podem ser sem querer,  utilizadas por algumas pessoas ou melhor que a nossa pequena lucidez não possa ainda entender.

Estas energias, quais existem, em grande quantidade, no universos, que ainda não são todas conhecidas tem um poder a qual desconhecemos. Falar do que não conhecemos é algo complicado, mas precisa ser falado e estudado.

Sou estudiosa de assunto, no que se refere a JESUS CRISTO, penso que Ele soube utilizar muito bem estas energias, para o beneficio de alguns. Outras pessoas as quais acredito, que tinha a facilidade de compreensão para entender tais energias. Albert Einstein conseguiu restringir o poder da Energia Atômica em uma bomba e depois para a saúde.

PENSE BEM ... tudo que não é explicado pela CIÊNCIA, ainda pode ser considerado PARANORMAL. Quando a ciência explica a origem desta energia, tudo fica mais simples.  Se pensarmos bem, somos partículas de energias que aglutinadas e compensadas, nos tornam seres vivos.

Iria ficar aqui, escrevendo tudo que penso, porem alguns poderão me achar excêntrica demais.

TRANSLATE:

I know very well about matters paranormal. Quantum physics answers some questions of these affairs.

We can say that energy, which we do not know, may be unwittingly used by some people, or better than our little clarity can not yet understand.

These energies, which exist in large amounts in the universe, all of which are not yet known which has a power unknown to us. Speaking of what we is not know something complicated, but needs to be talked about and studied.

I am expert in the subject, in relation to Jesus Christ, I think He knew very well use these energies for the benefit of some. Other people who believe that had the ease of comprehension to understand these energies are in the history of mankind. Albert Einstein was able to restrict the power of Atomic Energy in a bomb and then for health.

THINK WELL ... everything that is not explained by science, can still be found PARANORMAL.

When science explains the origin of this energy, everything is more simple. Properly understood, we are energy particles that clumped and condensed, makes us living beings. Other energy, yet has the ease of being seen or found better. Like everything else, will one day have a plausible explanation for our understanding.

Would be here, writing all I think, but some may find me too eccentric. But the mad are those who alter the nature and life, for the good or evil.

But let's be consistent with the current life. These energies give life to the virtual world.

You are wrong! Ive seen with my own eyes Shadow man who appears and can disappear witht he speed of light. this is not a shame to smart people this is another dimmention of life we are yet to explore. smart people will know that energy never dies, adn that there are interdimentional beings. please keep an open mind! I have personally worked with paranormal investigatiors, I have recorded things, i have seen things that completely changed the way my bbrain is wired. untill you see it for yourself you wont beleive it.
but its there trust me, and its real!  shadow people are not ghosts thats why its important to find more info about them.
I have EVPs and most importantly, ive see it!!!!! last time i saw the 'shadow man' was for at least  20 seconds the last and 3rd time. i have personally witnessed the shadow man phenomena 3 times, one was haunting my old house adn would come at night made me have nightmares, i woke from a nightmare once seeing a freakin man sitting on the edge of my bed and as i closed my eyes and opened them aagin after like a minute that thing was gone!!!!!!! and who do I turn to? everybody who hasnt seen it turns it down and makes us into nutcases. I refuse! i swear on my daughter life shadow people exist!! i use to have doubts till the 3rd time i saw it for the longest time. i thought it was my friend at first, 5'11 and a half tall girl who slept in the same room. then i turned the light on and there is nothing on the wall!!! that blew my mind. Shadow poeple exist and i would put my life on it!
Dear WL,

When i read about the Forum i was quite excited; a new place to confront is always welcome.

This excitement faded away in a bunch of seconds when among the section i noticed "Paranormal"

This is a slap to the scientific thinking and community, this is an insult to the smart people that are driving this society and our race forward.

I myself, don't feel comfortable in discussing were such nonsense is involved. Those themes are often used to scam people, brainwash minds just as religions does.

Therefore, since i consider speaking the "truth" a 360° job which should involve every aspect of WL, i will just avoid posting until such contradiction is solved.

Thanks you.

http://xkcd.com/718/ (http://xkcd.com/718/)

this is specifically for alien encounters. I'm pretty sure the numbers would be similar for any other paranormal genre.

And pretty much sums up why I think we should have a recipe sharing sub forum or a bowling sub forum before a paranormal one. As far as I'm concerned those discussion have a place on this forum, there is no point denying the people who wants to talk about that their right to speak. Just not in their own section for all the very good reason concerned users stated before me. There is a general section. Use it.

Put it this way, there are countless anecdotal evidences for all the main paranormal fields. If it was valid the sheer amount of those evidences would have produced undeniable proof at this point. It is right now so statistically improbable that we will ever find actual proof  that we should spend the time and resources lost on it to build a monument to human credulity. 

I suggest building the statue of a gigantic white elephant, on the moon.

John, the paranormal is not for stupid or unintelligent people. we all know that UFO exists, we all know that we are made up of energy and possibly this physical life form is not the end of our existence. keep un open mind "narrow minded people will not become influential figures"

most poeple are religious. bush himself i believe is a christian. wdoesn't ith that i assume most people believe in things which are not emperical.  paranormal section only means that science is further explored to gair a better understanding of the universe. we have important  issues to solve but  our underestanding of the world end  here oon earth. there are things and definitions you and I have never heard of, and I guarantee are out there, somewhere, in this vast universe

@Everyone

To be honest I am quite amazed about how much emotions a paranormal section is bringing in
and I am also amazed about how narrow minded some people seem to behave.

While looking at paranormal phenomena please bare in mind that only 500 years ago people in
Europe had a big chance of getting burned alive for either reading books or pretending to know
something that other people did not. The majority of the population in Europe at that point in
time could neither read or write, so in some parts of Europe it was illegal to have books in your
home. If someone in those days had pretended that in the future we would have something as
strange as a radio, or even worse might be able to land on the moon one day, he or she would
have had to face very serious consequenses.

And while we did quit the nasty habit of burning people alive, the idea that there are things that might
exist, that we just can not prove yet, seems to be very scary and therefore spark very emotional
responses. While military facilities usually do not jump at the idea of opening up their archives, there
is a lot of research that can be found on the internet into these abilities, especially done by military
facilities.
That research suggests that paranormal abilities are a fact and not a fiction. But of course for people
who do not wish to believe that, they will chose to ignore it.

How about everyone who hates the idea of paranormal just ignore the entire section and focus on
stuff that does interest you. And leave the paranormal stuff up to people who do find it interesting ?
That way everyone is happy and no one has to get annoyid.   :)

Personally I do not at all believe in UFO's but at the same time have no problem what so ever if
other people do. And I also do not expect them to prove it. It is a believe, just like religion is a believe.

Hello routefire,

I had to laugh a littlebit, you are absolutely right about this. The internet is so normal for us that I had
not even thought about that.  I find radio a very typical example because a radio produces waves just
like our brain does. So in 1500 the entire idea of our brain doing that would have sounded crazy to
people. They were clueless about hygiene and had no idea how diseases could spread. So during the time
of the plague for example it was not common practise to either wash your hands or burn the corpses of
the plague victims because there was simply no clue of how a virus or a bacteria could work.

You are totally spot on an open mind will help with a lot of things especially in the paranormal section.
The aggression with which some people want to spit around their idea that paranormal stuff does not
exist because they have not experienced it reminds me of the catholic churches prosecution of Galilee.
Below a piece of text that I translated from a website about the inquisition.

Spectacular and famous to this day are the trials of Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) and Galileo Galilee
(1564-1642). The Dominican monk Bruno was executed in February 1600 in Rome at the stake because
he had been denying allegedly irrefutable Christian truths. Bruno thus remained one of the few casualties
of the Papal Church, and mass persecutions in the Roman Inquisition were not common. The Inquisition
proceeded relatively graciously with Galileo Galilee: his doctrine, the sun is at the center of the universe
and not the earth shook the foundations of the Christian world view, which locates the earth and the
people in the center of God's creation. For years, the Church had tolerated Galileo's new findings as
scientific speculation. Only when Galileo announced that his theory was true, he ​​the Inquisition decided
on a process. The very prominent case of Galileo shows that the Roman Inquisition has not worked from
the outset in a bloodthirsty manner:

Despite his in church understanding, heretical teachings the Inquisition only condemned, Galileo
to life imprisonment after he had cancelled (retrieved) his findings in 1633, (lucky Galileo, only
life in prison after getting forced to lie, that is not so bad  8).)  The penalty got later mitigated into house
arrest (swell). Galileo was only very recently acquitted of the charges. To be exact, 15 years ago, on the
31rst of October 1992.

I am shure that he would have been thrilled to notice that the charges against him got dropped after
more then 350 years, if he had still been alive to enjoy it.  ;)

All of that trouble for daring to claim that his findings are true. As we all know by now, he did have a point
there. And in his time the church was the ruling political factor much like getting in the way of the US
Government with correct information would be nowadays.

The US military has admitted to having a research facility into paranormal stuff during the time 1976 to 1994.
And at the time this was an incredibly cheap way for them to gain information that they could otherwise
not get. And it still is. Much cheaper then shooting up and maintaining satellite dishes or the statue of
whatever on the moon.

Will look for some links to confirm the research.

Hi nikita,
 ha! I didn't know the church had formally released him of his charges! While I do not agree that this and the paranormal notion at present can be equated, it should indeed serve as a lesson in open mindedness for our species. People forget how young science and logic still are; we've been living in dogma for the past 50,000 years.

As you all can see , Paranormal board is in General Discussions Sections of the forum.

The aim of General Discussions section is to allow users to talk about topics , not necessarily related to WikiLeaks .
There are a few boards , one of which is Paranormal board , there is nothing wrong with that
and it's not an insult to anybody either .

This forum is about freedom of speech and it well represents the ideas behind WikiLeaks , there are a lot of ppl in the world who believe in Paranormal activities , just like a lot of people follow religions , I think it's our duty to respect those persons and give them the possibility to express their opinion and discuss freely about that kind of topic.

If you don't like that board , you have a choice , just join and discuss on another board .
But please , don't deny those people who think differently from you , the right to
express themselves and discuss about what they like .

best regards
