LARPing on Reddit
While Charlie Wiser does not use any alts on social media, it's up to others to decide whether or not they want or need alts. Not my business.
However, when someone is deliberately exploiting known weaknesses to manipulate others in a community (which I'll loosely define as a group using a platform to discuss a topic - #ufotwitter on Twitter, UFO-related subreddits, etc.), I have thoughts about it, especially if that user has gone one step further and attempted to gain people's trust with a personal touch - in DMs.
I've written before about the little red flag in a case that can't be reconciled with witness statements being true. Once that nugget of truth is forgotten, and the hoax is given free rein, laziness sets in. The original research and documentation are forgotten in favor of the re-re-repeated myth.
What if the answer was back there at the start all along?
When the nugget comes to light, the case falls apart. When the gods are smiling, that nugget is also hilarious.
Ross Coulthart’s 7NEWS Spotlight “Out of this world” (Aug 21, 2022) promised us “conclusive proof”, “testable evidence of alien technology”, and a “renowned scientist” who “confirms it all”.

Don't fear phantoms
Sleep paralysis has been offered as an explanation for some alien abduction experiences (I first read about it from Carl Sagan but I'm sure he wasn't the first), and the evidence shows the explanation is a good one.

Tweeting for the ages
For the three main cases covered on this site, I've added links to my relevant Twitter threads that cover aspects of each case in summary form.
The tweets are linked as bulleted lists from the main page for each case:
My pinned tweet lists a few additional threads, including for these cases:

Eight months of UFOlogy
In May someone on Twitter told me about an alien abduction case where two guys on different continents woke up wearing each other’s shirts. Then he mentioned Travis Walton, who I'd never heard of, and I read some stuff and made this site.
Since then I've looked into a handful of cases that interested me, bitten the heads off a few people who think they know better than me what I should be interested in, and written some Twitter threads. This is a retrospective from my point of view of the past 8 months, itemizing some things I've learned.

The Skinny on Bob
The name Skinny Bob kept coming up on Twitter. Every time I googled the name, I ended up at YouTube videos depicting alien creature sightings with titles like: "This looks like Skinny Bob."
But who was Skinny Bob?

Charlie Wiser, who are you really?
I get emails. Sometimes they are sent by people in an RPG who appear to believe I am in the same RPG. It's pretty funny.

Welcome to Three-Dollar Kit
Three-Dollar Kit aims to collect evidence for popular UFO sightings and alien abductions, starting with the Travis Walton case from 1975 which inspired the website's name. You'll see why.
Before you yell at me, remember: I don't care how many witnesses there are, or how "nice" the players are. Gimme the evidence.
If you still want to yell at me, write to me email@example.com. If my blood sugar level is high I may write back with wit. If my blood alcohol level is high I may write back with sarcasm.
Or I may ignore you. I may even quote you here, although without attribution unless you're (in)famous.
Comment on the blog to engage with other like-minded folk. (Don't blame me if they don't like your particular mind.)
Let's do this thing!!
I'm blogging about the Three-Dollar Kit.
