Whether it's the very odd James Randi (why WAS he at those 1950s UFO conventions? He wasn't there as a debunker!) to all those now-revealed CIA assets, debunking is definitely about winning, and has nothing to do with objective analysis or truth, despite the pretence.

The sheer hatefulness of debunkers marks them out as troubled spirits. There are lots of skeptical people who uncover facts, frequently demolishing long-held beliefs about UFOs in the process. That's science. But debunking... Debunking really is sociopathic. And the second-rate intelligences who promulgate it are either intelligence agency assets or even worse, useful idiots who aren't even making money (or trying to) out of debunking.
