Early on in my paranormal blogging I thought about releasing balloons into the sky and filming them, for research purposes only and not to fool anyone, but after a little more thinking quite a few unknowns bugged me, what if the balloons interfered with air traffic, what if the balloons gained to much attention, what if my act created a life long false UFO story for someone. It was just to reckless and I gave up the idea.
Now the Morristown Hoaxers Chris Russo and Joe Rudy I feel have been very reckless, it's wasted a few peoples time and money, interfered with emergency services, but I do like some of what they have to say about gullibility and the UFO community, but I hate the way they tried to teach us a lesson.
So why ask if the Morristown Hoax is a Good Thing? Well, I think it is but not in the way they intended it to be. Along with the Georgia Bigfoot hoax, the Morristown hoax is a good example of why NOT to create a hoax, come forward or get caught and you get punished in some way. Hopefully these two examples is enough to make wannabe hoaxers think twice about trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the public.
