Rumors are swirling today over a simple misreading of a MABRC Forum statement from Ed Smith published by the Robert Lindsay Blog, saying something about a captured Bigfoot. Somehow this got turned into a "Bigfoot Body" in the circulating rumors. Now D.W. Lee, lead honcho of the MABRC (Mid America Bigfoot Research Center) is out there saying he "can neither confirm nor deny" the factuality of this statement and interpretation. He is saying "no comment" wherever the issue arises. What is really going on here?
It's obvious. Robert misread the statement, put a spin of excitement on it, and now DW is using the situation to garner attention for his group. It would only take a simple phone call to his friend, Ed, to find out, would it not? Why the mystery mongering? Why play at X-FILES, being a sort of Mr. X character speaking mysteriously from the shadows? Why not just come out and tell the truth? Because it is good for web hits, and brings the MABRC out of its Oklahoma backwater. That is why.
Here is the statement, as quoted by Robert Lindsay...
Here is Lindsay's opinion of Mr. Smith:
"We can neither confirm or deny the existence of a body. I will state this unequivocally that Ed Smith IS our friend."
Again, I ask you, WHAT IS THE POINT OF SUCH STATEMENTS?
