    I agree with you. The GOP investigated Hillary (who I do NOT support) obsessively and did not find a single thing to charge her with. Yet the right wing media campaign to create scapegoats on the Left continues 24 by 7. And the ufology field eats it up like a bag of Tostito's chips. Yet no mention of all the corruption and disgusting behavior in the White House RIGHT NOW. As I told one rabid right winger who was ranting about leftists (who dare to want to extend Medicare to all citizens), American GOP right wingers are so extreme that all but a handful of the 7 billion people residing on planet Earth would now be considered "Leftist" to them. Showing the slightest sign of empathy and compassion for anyone not already a billionaire is now "Leftist". Frankly, the REAL Jesus Christ (not the GOP version) was about as Leftist as you can get, even if Bill O'Reilly (Fox News celebrity) wrote a book about Jesus claiming that he was for low taxes and small government. If it wasn't so hilarious, I would cry. American corporate Christianity sure isn't what Jesus had in mind.

    I have a suggestion. Everyone here who has Paracast forum access should start posting requests for money. Make up a truly wild sad story and ask GENE, RANDAL and Paracast forum members to send you money. Send Gene and Randal private emails asking for money.

    In other words, rebound back on him his own tactics. Drive him silly until you are banned. Use some of his story lines.

    See how he and Randall like it.

    Speaking of Randall, how can he sell his soul so cheaply. At least Trump held out for huge skyscrapers in major cities around the world. This small time operator is happy with co-hosting on a rinky dink podcast at a time in history when paranormal podcasts are now a dime a dozen on YOUTUBE and elsewhere on the internet.

    I am sure that person was a Deep State Troll sent out by Donald Trump to shut Gene down. Seriously, why hasn't Gene tried that time tested line about how trolls are after him because he knows some highly secret information and they want to shut him down. That line is pretty standard in the conspiracy realm. In fact, it is a necessary part of your resume to claim that you know "too much" about X, Y Z and that the authorities want to shut you up. Then make the pitch for money to keep "the truth" coming!

    MYSTERIOUS UNIVERSE. This is a wonderful podcast that tackles all the topics of the paranormal with common sense and humor. They do not make fun of legitimate stories but they do mock the absurd fringe elements of the paranormal. MU is hosted by 2 very bright Australian men who do this for a living, so they devote a lot of research into each show. Entire shows are deeply entertaining just with the dialogue between the 2 guys. They are each "reporters". They share their research findings, then the other host discusses it with the other host. They also have topical guests like Jeremy Corbell, Richard Dolan and an assortment of guests that do not make the rounds of C2C and other shows. There is a free version on YOUTUBE. But if you can afford $9 a month, it is well worth it because you get a 2.5 hour show each Saturday, and a PLUS episode (also can be that long) during the week. If you become enthused, you can also buy literally 500+ archived shows since these guys are hard workers and do a couple shows per week going back years. Again, these guys are smart - not one of those C2C morons like Noory or Church pushing whatever insanity will sell. They are sincere about the topics.

    Hey Nivet, can you consider NOT having a dark grey background at the top of each page of the forum. The posts are hard to read and I tend to just skip down to the ones that have a white background. Just a thought. I see no value in having a dark background to a forum.

    I meant more the new agey space brother types I've met through personal experience but agreed a lot of the old guard seem to be just plain nuts while trying to put it under the banner of being conservative. Calling Obama a Muslim (as if that means anything anyway - what happened to freedom of religion and separation of church and state) is not right wing or conservative as I understand it is just plain nuts and it devalues real decent conservatives.

    Couldn't have put it better myself. Their show is top notch (in all respects) and I have been a listener since the beginning. The subs option is well worth it too if you can afford it.

    I wish Gene well in a cosmic sense but not in the terms HE would wish, i.e., having other people pay his bills. I ask God (whoever THAT is) to bless everyone each night. That is probably a futile request, but it lightens my mind. But I expect that blessing to be what that person NEEDS. In Gene's case, he needs a cosmic kick in the pants.

    More money would just corrupt him more, he would simply spend it all and keep asking for more. The only thing that might help him is shipping him off to a developing country for a few years to live in true hardship and realise what that means - no safety net and you basically have to do hard (often manual) work for a pittance.

    I am a big fan of MYSTERIOUS UNIVERSE obviously. I paid a lot of moola to download ALL seasons. Season 1 is pretty amateur so I skip playing those. But there are so many episodes that I created a PDF for myself that lists all the extended episodes and the contents. Then I started illustrating them with pictures from the internet. I had time to do all this because I have been recuperating from surgery and have enough energy to sit around and type. LOL

    Hey! Maybe you or others would like to see if the document has value for you? I continue to work on it and update it. I created it so I would have a quick reference to all the episodes and what they contain. Otherwise, you have to go to the website and look up each show (too much work for me). I haven't yet done this for the PLUS shows. Give it time to load - it is a large file.

    That grey fade was part of the style, and I have no problem removing it...I'll look at it later tonight or tomorrow morning when I get on my server at home to see where that setting is...

    That's awesome. Something like that would be very useful. I think some of those episodes would be valuable to listen to again but there is so much content that there is no way to know where to start so this is awesome work. I don't think it would be just useful to me. I think you should contact Ben and Aaron I think they would really appreciate it! You could get a plug for your work and maybe a free plus membership or something!

    WOW! Just had a quick read through and that must have taken you hundreds of hours of work to do. You definitely should mention it to the MU guys - worth a try - you deserve the props.

    I've never come across someone who runs a forum as efficiently and actively as you. It is outstanding. If you ever need help with donations by starting a Patreon to pay for server costs etc let me know. I would rather contribute to this than Steinbeg and the Parasite.

    I will do that but you have my permission to come at them from another angle with the same information.

    Why? Because when I have written to them, they totally ignore me. I don't know if that means they aren't as nice off the show as they are on the show, or if the sheer volume of mails overwhelms them. I have sent them specific questions about content I paid for (Season 13 is still missing) and no response. Maybe they are too successful now to care?

    It's sheer volume of mail they get. It is one of the most popular shows. In the early days it was easy to get through (I think that was before even Aaron came onboard) but I think they have so much volume now that a lot gets missed. I do think they care it's just there are only so many hours in the day! I think you have a definite chance. Try it. If you get no luck I'll send a message to them too and maybe we can get others to do it and maybe increase the chances of them spotting it. Like amplifying the signal.

    So according to this:

    The New Site and the New Forum

    The only real difference with the new forum is a fancy homepage.

    Everything else looks very similar. Maybe the font and colour scheme was adjusted a bit.

    The colours look just as garish and the layout is not improved much (if the Rockoids forum is anything to go by which Gene says the change is based on).

    I'm no web wizard but I could make a similar homepage and adjust some colours and fonts (which is what appears to have been done) in an afternoon and I would still have time to do something else!

    This has taken since August! This proves that there was no Anders.

    Gene just plucked a name out of the forum (kind of like he plucks names to make fake posts with), concocted a story and milked it for as long as he thought he could.

    Here is how the "new" look appears on the Rockoids forum (yes I was surprised there was a forum for that garbage too):

    Just for comparison here is the old Parasite forum before Gene yanks it so people can compare. It just seems that Gene has messed around with the font, amount of text and increased to two large ads. He didn't even go with a completely different colour scheme:

    I would purchase UFO Casebook's database too if it were available, same with Paracast, but I'd only want the original file, no copies, same goes for Alienhub if it were to become available to purchase...People spent years building those databases, they should be available to the public, why not on a forum like this who see the value of all those posts and information?...

    Thanks, doubt I'll ever start donation asking but thanks for saying...

    The white background is full on now for all the pages with content threads, no more fading colour on the top of the page in the thread texts and posts...
