As a recent initiate, conscientious observer say, of the field
of ufology I have been taking notice of many of the postings on
Updates but I have begun to question the role of the ufologist
who seems to spend more time engaged in verbal battles of
sarcasm and inuendo than in actually completing any research. I
am in complete agreement with Roy Hale's recent posting

>A divided community can never get answers

To become drawn into purial paroxysms serves only to discredit
the work of the ufologist who is then seen to care more for his
reputation and standing amoungst others than for the validity of
his/her research. Is this a conspiricy to draw public attention
away from the offerings of theoretical answers?

Obviously the nature of the field dictates differing opinions as
shown currently through the Burns v Clarke controversy but I
feel it is important to focus only on the research and not on
the personal lives of those involved.

Proof undeniable may well be the researchers ultimate goal, for
fame and fortune and being the first has always in any genre
been the ambition and intention but the ufologist's
responsibility should be not only the search for and the
uncovering of the secrets of the UFO prodigy it should also be
to provide the general public with information beyond proof.
This rather than self gratification should be the goal.

As the general consensus seems to be that E.B.E's (if they do in
fact exist) have hostile intentions where are the ufologists who
are offering the public concrete strategies for dealing with the
prevention of alien intervention?

In World War 2 the British public dug their gardens to assist
the war efforts.

What has it been decided, in the higher echelons of ufology that
the public should be doing to contribute to this war effort?

Replies most welcome.
