Sounds as if Klass was defining all abductees as all the
abductees he had been in contact with.

Since I don't have my Appelle article handy, can you tell me if
he dealt with factitious disorders in the JUFOS (I think) paper
he wrote? If I remember correctly, the paper dealt with
disorders that abductees aren't likely to suffer from (to put
it simply).
