I was referring to the time when John Powell, the Duke and John
Velez were kicking around an idea of comparing some of the alien
script. I think there was a bigger plan, as well, but I'd be
hard-pressed to remember what it was. I'm sure that the idea was
squelched by Budd, but then again, my memory isn't so great and
I could be wrong.

That wasn't what I was referring to, but I think as mentioned in
another post of Peter's, both Hopkins and Jacobs have been
somewhat stingy with their data.

I just think if we are going to talk about TUDs (to use the
Duke's acronym), more than one researcher needs to share those
TUDs with the researcher analyzing the data -- and not just the
alleged TUDs but the whole body of data because similarities can
be very subjective, IMO.

I wasn't attempting to breed a myth for the Duke.
