The only examples that I have personally experienced are those
perpetrated by other 'ufologists'. Veiled threats and oblique
warnings in otherwise friendly conversations, overt threats in
emails, etc.

I also received crank phone calls at odd hours of the night, but
I silenced them by disallowing anonymous calls on my line. I
suspect that these also originated from within the UFO
community.

One person who thought they may have been undergoing an
abduction experience that I was working with also reported
threatening phone calls from someone using a voice processor to
disguise their voice. I am quite certain that I know the person
responsible to have been another investigator (and experiencer)
who was supposed to be helping with the case (if you're reading
this, you know who you are!). In that situation I explained to
the victim who I thought was behind it, and what I based that
accusation on, and advised them to ignore further calls unless
they became a real nuisance. I also conveyed to the person that
I thought was responsible that measures had been taken to
identify the culprit which should produce results on the next
occasion. The calls stopped.

As a general rule of thumb, I suggest ignoring any such
behaviour unless you can identify the culprit, in which case you
should then confront them at a time and place of your choice.
However, some circumstances may require that active attempts to
identify the person responsible are made.


Regards,

Joe
