Amen to that. It has only been since reading stuff on the
internet that I personally realized how negative,
confrontational, and competitive so many in ufology truly are. I
don't go to conferences, and I never got that picture from
reading books or even the odd TV show. The name calling and
nastiness leaves a really bad taste in a lot of mouths. Disagree
all you want, but what in the world is accomplished by name
calling and personal attacks?!

Again, amen! I have now met so many witness' or abductees who
have been burned badly by going public even in the slightest way,
that I have to say that if I personally managed to take a
detailed photo or video, or grab some sort or physical evidence,
I would be scared to death to offer that info. I would feel 100%
certain that no matter how geniune what I had to offer was, I
would be torn to bits, most of all by those who are in ufology.
Are we all really after answers? I have said it before and will
again, anyone, witness, abductee, or "researcher" who basically
says "I am right and pretty much everyone else is wrong-and to
prove it I will engage in deeply personal attacks on all and
sundry"-will find no quarter with me. What a waste of precious
time and resource.
